This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search

SUMMARY AND REVIEW. 

Vtmhanat dtt rickatti is not, at the pruent moment, 
tbe cril of which the purvei^ort of political intelligeticB in 
Indit have to complain. "Nev«1e«s maiU " are the topic 
of UmcDUUon. "Peace the most profound," aayi the 
Htrkan, " nifpaa tliroughout the wide bound* of India, 
Kai not 80 nmch aa a rumour of an intennptioD to thia 



bappjr eUI« of affair* ia heard od mbj ude, eren at tha 
be^nDing of (he cold aeaion, when war too often haa 
atalked forth from thoae retnat* to which he ha« been con- 
fined during the hot months br a fire more destmctiTe 
than hia own." 

The oalr incident which wean the eemblance of an 
exception to this general tranqtiillilj is the movement of M 
force of aome etrength, under Cdond Lawrence, mainat 
some Affghan marauders on the bordera of the Peahawnt 
lerritorj. Tliia force, which waa to march into the Enaofajo 
countrjr (the people of which are well diapoaed to na), eon- 
aisled of Fordfce'a troop of Bengal horae artilleryj one 
company of Bombay aappera aod miaera, under Iiieutenant 
Kendall J 300 men of the. 60th rifles, and 300 of H. M.'a 
6l8t foot; the entire 3rd Bombay natire infuitry; aod the 
13th Bengal irr^ular cavalry ; together with thfli:e«id«Mj 
cavalry and infantry — in all about 8,aou men. In addition 
to the thievish propensities of the tribes referred to, ofiience, 
it appear*, haa been given by some cbiefk in that quarter, 
who refuse to pay the tribute due to the Government. He 
robber* in the very neighbourhood of Peahawur are aaid to 
be moat daring, and all well armed. 

TbeNisam'a itateeontinneatobe a kindofplague-epotin 
the eonadtulion of India. A serious disturbanoe appear* to 
have taken place between the Pathan Suwan (or Arab mer- 
cenaries] and the Nisam's Line-wallah*, both actuated by a 
mutinous spirit, in which several lives were loat on both 
udes. The capital i* in a state of confusioD, which por- 
tends, it may be hoped, a speedy termmatiou of tha capri- 
doua tyranny of thi* feeble prince. The BwffKtliMan 
•ays:—

in India, waa subscribed without being read, and the order

Coal Company's shares f I am unuble to state tbe present market 
vatoe of any of these sliares), and 647i Benares Bank shares." 
My opjtoaitian Is chiefly directed to the first, which is due by 
the Insolvent iniltvidtially, and in tbe oeation of which, as I ant 
instructed, he has been guilty of a breach of trust. 

Col. P. L. Pew examined by Mr. Morlcn.~ I am a colonel of 
artlllerr. I was a director of the Benares Bank, and nominally 
a trua Me— bat nothing was ever mnde over to me in trust. The 
bank was established 1st August, 1815, but I was not in Benares 
at ihe'tlne. I was not a director originally, nor till about 
Sepcawbiar.'IMS. The origlnj paid-up eapfial was Rs. a.50,000 
— ilivided into 1,000 shares, of tbe nominal amount of 
Co. '8 Rs.aOO espb, but of which Co.'s Rs. 250only was paid 
up. A thousand new shares were afterwards ctcaCed, precisely 
aieailar ahares. There ivereallogetherflve increases subsequent 
to tbe original issue of the flist stock. The second hall of the 
first 1,000 shares was never paid up. Rs 950 upon each ebarc 
of the second issue was paid up. After tbe last issue of 
newatoek, the total numberof sham wak 4000, on none of 
each of which more than Rs, 250 bad been paid. I believe (be 
bank had paid for them all, taking other security for (he money 
advanced. The subsequent shares were issued at par to the old 
piopvietote. IfaU the abares were paid up at Rs. S50, the total 
capital ot the bank, after the issue of the last instalment of 
stocks, would be fifteen Ucs. I left Benares in March last 
on sick certificate, t continued a director to March last. 
The Benares Bank suspended payment on tbe 1st August 
last. I think some bye-laws were made by the directors for 
regulating advances by the bank. In lending on personal secu- 
rity, the practice was to require two personal sureties, besijes 
tbe applicant tor the loan. I do not remember that any limit 
was assigned to tbe extent of the money lent on personiil security. 
The directors would be guided by the supposed means of the 
applicant and personal sureties. In lending on tbe shares of 
other joint-stock companies, the direclora genemlly allowed the 
whole par value. There were seven directors witti myself In the 
bank. A managing committee of three was formed, orArbirh I ' 
made one; Capt. Fagan and Dr. Bulterwere the others. Alt'

up. 1 bad given no money-pavment, but other aecuriljr for 
theK 617 bank sbarea, and the tonkpaid tliem up. t.garefor 
them what waa coaildered good aecunty by the director! at tbe 
time. Some portion of tbe money due on then I paid into the 
bank myaelf I cannot ■bv precliely lion' mucli, baving kept no 
regular booka ; but I befiere it \raa aliout Ha. 90,000. Tbe 
total number of m J shares in tbebanh w^ 991 ; and upon tliete 
T tbink I paid about R«. 80,000. UpirardaofiSO of my abare* 
in the bank were cancelled in the cancellation in December last. 
I was not preaent at the bank when this took place, being aick. 
I doot ttunk I gave any *ot« on tbe occaEion. I did not object 
to the eaneellation, certainly i bat I expreaaed natrisbonthe 
autject, either way. The Director* genrtally expreaaed a iviah 
for tbe cancellation. Capt Fann and Dr. Butter bad some of 
tfaeira cancelled. The bank bad paid luion these abarea for m«; 
The cancellation bad the effect of adding a lac of rupee* to tLe 
credit aide of m; account with tbe bank, but only ior « time. 
The ttaunction did not lake, effect ullimatety. I ttink the 
cancellation took effect from tbe 1st of August, I&18. 1 voted 
in reapect of the whole 991 abarea. In August, 181d, for in- 
stance. Siiidenda were declared in ^uguft J«t, at an 
avenge of 18 per cenL on tbe paid-up part,^ vis. Kb. 850 
a abare. I did not draw divldendg on the wtwlaflSl. 
abarea, but I waa credited witli them in the bank'a books. 
I considered the abarea I held to have been paid up, hariqg 
given good aeeurity Ibr tbe purcbMe-nion«y. I received riivit 
dends on the sharea for n'bich (he bank bad paid, and Ibr which 
I bad givcQ security : that ia to say, I was credited with (beta 
in tbe banU'a books, and T drew on the account at I raaxirtd. 
I have aaid that Ra. 250 were paid for tbe whole 6.000 ahsna 
iaaued; I cannot aay bow many shares were in tbia pradica- 
ment Tlie lU 80,000 wtiicb I had, paid up, reprMtntad 300 
shares. The others 1 gave good security for. Oo Iba whole 
6,000 shares, about 6 or 9 iaca were paid up. Of tbit, I got 
about 7 Iica. There were three peraonal sureties lor the debt 
to tbe bank, of Co.'a lU. 42,000 due by myself and the other 
partners of the Nisbcbindeepore Sugar Factory, who save a 
bond. Major Stewart and Dr. Duncan were tlie 9ur«tiea be- 
sides myself. They were co-directors in the Benares Bank. 
Tbe debt ot Co.'s Its. 29,000 due to the bank by myself and Iha 
other partners of the Richmond estate jointly, waa borromd ia 
the same way, upon the names of myaelf, Capi. Pagan, and Dr. 
Butter. I say tbe aame of the debt of Co.'s Ra. l.Oi^OOOL due 
jointly from me and the other partner* of the Ganges Compaiw. 
We were all three (J e. Major Siewart, Dr. Duncan, add my^ 
aelf ), I think, directors of the lank at tlie lime of tbese hwH. 
I am not certain about Dr. Duncan. The debt to Ibe bank of 
Co."s Ha. 3,500, due jointly from myself and IbeotberBarttwr* 
of the Mbrapore Coal Company, was borrowed on the sMurity 
of Mr. Hamilton of Miraapore, Major Stewart, and iQyaelf. 1 
thought the Dorca Bant abares were always conaidered of good 
maHietable value. Tbe Dacca Bank ia not o^ily in exiaunce 
yet, but ia doiuK well. Tbe Benares and Mlrwpare Conpanv 
which atarted ihe Saaeftt, is still in ei;isteace. Mr. Stopfuid 
runs the Kiuhtjte as tbe agent of tbe Company. Bh. 3,000 waa 
paid upon each abare of tlie Nisctiindeepore Supir CMnaany, 
in the Miraapore Coal Company there must be, at least, twenty 
partnen, or more. Tbe shares of this Company were sold in 
the market, I believe. I may hare voted for loaiw that I myself 
applied for; but I do not remember that I did. My vow was 
. not requitiie. The other two members of the managing com. 
mittee cooslilated a majority, and passed tb« loan. Capt. 
Fagan and Dr. Butter are indebted to tlie bank for alure*. In 
August I&IS, there was an election of directors. In answer to 
your queation, whether we three voted each other in as dlrec- 
tors, 1 can only say that there waa ■ limited field at Benarea, 
and there wa* none others there qualified for tbe direction' 
Capt. Fagan and Dr. Butter and myaeJf were tberefora elected! 
There waa a proposition for tbe appointment of auditors ui 
Angnst last I did oppose it The proposition was re- 
jected. I dar* say it was known to the aharehaldera that 600 
of my sbatcs bad not been paid for, tjicept by tbe bank itself, i 



who took aeciirity.. I must hsre approved of the haif-yearl* 
reports of the director*, pabiisbed during my conneWIoi with 
the bank aa director. The reporta rcpnemnted that the oaid-nD 
capiulwas 15 lacs; akbonghSwO i^ waa ,bc amSuM «5 
capital actually paid up. 1 thought this uo miirepreaertatlmi. 
for 1 considered that tli? money lent to the people who tuHfer 
shares upon leeuttty, sna ttie bank's capital lent. I euKM 
say whether, in every case iihere tlie lank bn« m this 
way, money re^ passea. If the Lank le«t m^ ntoatt 
on good aecwity. apd t purchased share* wJth The -noner M

tiee of purcbaaing ahaiea u^s«»ii.y, was geoerairy understood 
among th« sUutdmlders, I bel.cve. Capt. Graham was a ™«^

ailing. 

iVDtunfer & — Jn D a H iHT. 
Sir L, PttL — The cste baa bren fully considered b]> me tineS' 
the arguoient. Tbe principal (lueation to be considered is, 
whether tbe flat section oF (be Insolvent Act i« applicable to it. 
I have a painful duty to undertake ; for I muat express atrang 
censure of the conduct of the directors lA the Beaaras Bank. 
The adnnceil age, the feeble health, and the preeenl Hreuai' 
stance! oF tbe insolvent, render tbls duty more than ordinarily 
painful to me. My cause of diisstishction with the eendvct of 
the direclora of this bank is, not merely that they ronduetad ita 
affairs upon a system totally opposed to sound principles oF bank- 
ing, but that they, as I think, paid no regard, or, at beat, but 
small renrd, ta the duties of persons placed in a AdtKiaiy poai- 
tion. The directors oF a joint-stock insillution oofjM never to 
make their position and influence subservient to their prirmte 
putpoaes. They are placed at the head of the institution to 
protect the interesia oF individual shareholdera ; and, atrictly 
speaking, they are trustees for the entire bodr. This being so, 
they should never favour tliemseives or their friends, btit be paib 
^ulurly rigid iti the application of rules wUefa every prudeM 
private banker would obiarre. When it is eonridered that the 
Benares Bank was started only four years ago — that Its paid-up' 
capital was so small as 8,000£ — that, so br aa tlie Court on 
aee, it sulTared no heavy losses hum the caauallies of trade; 
that, during Ihe brief period oF its existence, it was reduced to 
auch a e'ate of embamasment as to be compelled to suspend 
operations — and that tbe elate of ita ssaett was such, that th« 
paid-up capital is represented by aasets coniialing of debts that 
may b« more properly described a* deaperate than good; it is 
impossible to say that the conduct oF the directors was at all 
consistent with propriety, or that any director could have been 
so obtuse aa to suppose that il was such. It is perfectly rrue 
that ihia cast, ia not «o Iwd as that oF the Union Bank directors, 
to which it has Jieen. compared. Col. Pew, at the time he con- 
tracted bis dobta to tbe Benarea Bank, was. a man of very targe 
property! and the evidence shoiaa that the vakw of bis aaatta 
generally was more tlmn BnOicient to cowc th* amount of bis 
debta ; nay, that there would be a conaidanMe anrpiua aFlec 
payment oF tbe debts, It ta true, that property of I)>e kind be 
pledged is sulyect togreat depreciation; that it is difficult, upon 
a sudden pressure, to convert a large quantity into money ; and 
that, therefor*, the aecurity given waa of an inferior description ; 
but still, it appears, upon the evidence, that it was a species of 
property whieh waa in demand in tbe Mofussil i and that, up to 
December, IMT, it might have been aakt or repledged by the 
bank, so as to cover tbe amounts adrnnced. But, on the other 
hand, it is to be observed that Col, Pew had great inOuetica 
over the direction of the bank ; and that he might, Iberefcre, 
fetter the bank in the diapoaal of his own sheraa. 

The points to be considered with reference to the advances 
obtained, are — tbe amoimt of tbe loans, and the value and nature 
of the securitiea pledged. The sum lent ia certainly enormous, 
even as regards a man of large capital. Tbe nature of the 
pledge tvas such, that it would be difficult to realize tbe esti- 
mated value, when it was sent into the mariiet in laixe quan- 
tities. All this being considered, the conduct of the bank in 
advancing the loans, was, in my opinion, extremely improper. 



There are sOme other rlrcumttanees respecting whiofa I have^.' 
to express my strong disapprebation. The flrat of these itT 
payment of dividends out t>f capital. Tlie premia realised upon 
shares formed part of tbe capital stock of the bank. It waa 
precisely the same as iF stock were given out by tbe bank M 
par. Whether the shares were saleable at ISOL or M., tke 
price which they fetched waa part oF the capital stock. 

Then, it appears by the evidence, that intareat waa not r^o- 
lirly paid up by many botrowart of the fanda of Um bank i and 
that profits not realised were conaidervd a* naliMd; and thu, 
in point of feet. Urge dividenda were mada «it of capital. 

The next point is, what I consider tbe improper conduct of 
Ihe directors in giving themselves such undue tnOuence by voting 
in respect of shares upon which they had wot paid up the par- 
chase-money. The deed CKpraMty prohiUta votes upon abarct 
in this position. Col. Pew baa mM, in adf-joatUaation, tktt, 
having given good security fiw certain of bis ahwea, be eaa- 
sidered them virtually paid up. But it is imiioaaible to pot 
such a conattnction npon tha prorislonB of libe deed. The 
plainest restrictions of a partnership dead irigM be evaded, V 
such sophistical reasoning were pernrittod. A pledge is not a 
payment. It ig given, became payment is not msde. If, then, 
tbe deed etipniates that Che tbares of the bank niMt be paid np, 
what right have tbedireetof* toad*— "or eeearadl" Wton, opoB 
creation of new stock, a banfc parttwWi it»abwei,no* upo« an 
actual money- payment, but upoa «•• H«>e« o* Ae»WT»t»»« 
taken, the whole thing operates ■■ a BHtedetaiion. 8wppiM«for 
instance, that a jo'mt-stoeh- bank advcrltaea le the world that 
all lis capital had been paid np j who wwild infcr f(om tbls that 
DO part had been paid up in &ct; but that a oonsidai^le pnt 
stood pledged to the very Institution of wilicb thej- were the 
shares? No one. ItisobWout, then, wbat fraudalent use might 
be made of such « private armgement by a bnbUe bank or 
company. If the public knewtbil none e< lis akkras bad bee*' 
actnalty paid Fbr, the value of Ita stock In the market wottM be 
nil. But, if this slate of things were aaaaaaEMly eoncealet), 
the public would believe that the amount atatad had been paid 
up in full ; the value of flie Aarea, upon tbe atrength of thm 
delusive representation, might rise; and e*ery party that pur- 
chased would have been duped and defrauted. 

I regret, therefore, to say, that tbe comluet of the diieeiota 
of the Benares bank appear* 10 m* to haw been posaly im- 
proper; BO improper, indeed, that, it aa application were made to 
me, in a init properly instituted, toe the roao^ of the parties 
trom their office of directors, I eboald not have hesitated one 
moment in declaring them disquallSed kom acting in any Bitu- 
ciary character- 
But notwithstanding thia opinion, I cannot go the length ot 
dismissing the insolvent's petition, the neoeasary consequence of 
which would be to expose hhn to the risk of imprisonment for 
an indefinite period of time. Such a step la never taken by an 
Insolvent Court, except in caaes of actual ftaud, where there 
has been nm^ onnM, or the intention to deceive. 

Colonel PeWs conduct baa not been of this character. He 
bad tbe means lo pay his debts when he contracted ttem- 
There is no ground for supposing at the time of tha 
deposit that the securities he pledged would depreciate 
in value, or that he incurred ibe debts without any inten* 
tion of paying them. Nor did he risk Ihe payment of hia debts 
on tbe continuance of his life. Had bit life terminated the 
very next day, there waa his property, which waa of substanttet 
valueliben, to be reailied in aatishetion of his debta. There la 
no evidence against hitn, as Ihere-wa* agslnat tbe director* of 
the Union Bank, of a public annouacenient, oloae upion ilop- 
page. that tbe bonk eontiaued in aflMuiaMng eoadition — an 
announcement which canaoC be too strongly cflnMred, aa con> 
veying ■ wicked and delibeiata &laehood, pregnant with miidiief 
and niin lo all who confided In it- 

The remaining qBe*tian.ta be considered is. whether the 51 St 
section ot the IiisolvcBt Act is applicable to this case. Tliis ia 
of no real importance, since there is no prospect of any suit 
being instituted agwnet the insolvent, which might terminate 
in his imprisonment. The 5lsl section of the Insolvent Act is 
framed upon the following principle :— It does not, like the 
50lh section, enable (he judge to Imprison an insolvent for mi*, 
conduct appearing before him in evidence, but merely enables 
him to put a restriction on the freedon which an inaolvenC ac- 
quires by his discharge. In effect it keep* alive tbe creditor'a 
remedy againKt the person of the debtor, which the law esteem* 
some species of satisfaction, but limits it to sach period as the 
Ineolvent Court may think reasonable. Specially aggrieved 
creditors must work out their own remedy by a suit instituted 
in the proper tribunal. Every creditor is aggrieved who doe* 
not receive his money ; but those creditors suffer under a special ' 
grievance, the debts to whom have been contracted by means of

L'MXjiErr. — The ProbhaliaT hu beeo at 
ct number of FoojihBthii yew. 
Bs fumiihes the following itatement, and aaiare* hia readris 
tbat iti coirectueis any be mielf relied on : — " Doorga. — Mr. 
UBbctnred 300 in eiceas of the uiual number ; all wld with tbe 
exception ofibout ten. KalL — Manubctured 1,600 in exceuof 
the ummI Btambcri all Bold witb the exception of about 15. 
JagattHatr^- — Msnuhctured upvards of 3,000 in exceia of (be 
Diual number; all sold without a lingie exception. N. B. Tlie 
demand (till continuing, the dead stock of Kalii, Kartio, and 
Ganeabas, in store, was mutilated and transformed into Jigatt. 
dhatiies. These too were sold; and jet tbe nart continued 
crowded with multitudes of cuslomen. Tlie god-makers were, 
at but, driven to the neceasiCj of drying the elaj bj fire, that n* 
time might be lost in psintiiig tbe imlgee." 

HaaTALiTT IH EuKorEAH Ttoora. — We regret to learn from 
a coRcspondent of tbe tfuritoni, that the number of deaths in 
llie Queen's corps at the presidenej aince Jane last, amoant* to 
the Ter^ lai^e number of too hundrtd and forO/.t^hl. H. U. 
TOlhloic 131; tbedTtb43| wd the 96lb 57. It liai been gene- 
rallj sffirmed that each recruit costs Government Ri. I.COO 
before he is aectimtted, and fit (or seirke. Calculating the lo«s 
to Government M Ibia venle, it amount* on the imsmdI oecaskm 
to nearly fioo laei and a half of rtipta. There can be no doubt. 
' however, that the loss does not hW short of a lac and a half of 
lapeesi to this is to be Mlded tbe amount of penonal miserr 
ettdured hj the poor men, and' the dlHres« of their bereaved 
relatives. Niltbev nn there be tbe smalJMt doiibt that the 
greater part of tbis pecuniary loss and Ibi* wretchedness might 
have beeo taved by greater aueMieD t* the diet, tbe comforts, 
and the location of tbemen. Tn all these respect* there is a 
depee of apathy tfhicb reSecti no Htlle discredit en (he public 
autboritie*. Some bavc propowd one remedy, and some an. 
otlter. We ventuejo si^nfM^tbtt on .the airlval of a European 
corps, a medical officer ol the Company's service, who has 
enjoyed loag «i|wrienM ia thecountiYi ipore especially in tbe 
treatmcNt of Bnfopean sol^ersi and nllo coa tptak the language, 
be immediately appointed to do duty with it i that all his rcqui- 
^tioas be promptly and effectaaliy eNecoted i and tbat.wbenerer 
any delay occurs he be at liberty to break through tbe routine 
of offlcial correspondence, and to tubmit his report direct to die 
governor. Jscquemont designated our Gorennnent as a station- 
ary Government. Speed and efficiency are extinguished nnder 
tlw maa* of officitd cocrespoudence. In the case of the soldiers, 
they have been knono to sink by dpeens into the arms of death, 
while requisitions. lor their comfort were creeping through the 
iaiBlte foroM of 9&eer—Frimd rflndta.

Sir Thomas Turtoo is at present ■ prisoner in the Calcutta 

t'sil, pending the hearing of his petition by the Insolvent Court; 
lut we believe it is not generally known how admirably be ha* 
arranged for bis comfortable accommodation. He has obtained 
the use, at an outlay of a hundred rupees to Mr. King per men- 
•em, of a commodiout suit of apartments, bigb, dry, and airy, 
and commanding a delightful view of tbe entire maidan west of 
tbe jail premises. Hare he receives visits from friends and calls 
from clients, of the latter of- whom JD particnlar a large number 
crowd to his jail ebambera daily, and at be docs busineat on 
cath terms and usually is a bard bargain, be is stated to derive 
a very handsome iocome by tbis chamlnr practice. It is true 
he is not allowed out for an evening ride on the ttiand, hut 
there is a clean and eitentive area within the jail and a large 
lerrare, sufficient for all the purposes of exercise, and then of 
^ an evening there is often beanl the melodiont totind of a beau- 



tiful piano issuing from the baronet** aperttnentt, detigned no 
doubt to soothe his solitude. What then vrith comfortable and 
salubrious lodgings, lucrative employment (■ the day, a pleataot 
promenade in the evening, and Uie ^d of Diaaic and bocica. It to 
not very likely that Sir Tiiomas Turton'i temporary tojouni in 
the jail willln any serious manner aSeet bit bodily health oc 
mental faculties. — Bmgal Bwian.

EXPERIMENTAL COTTON FARMS IN' 
SOUTHERN INDIA. 

W« hare been (avoured witli a nutuber of iotereMins papcra 
upon ihe subject of tbe eiperimental cotton ftrma in Soutbem 
India, consisting of reports to Government; eitimels from offi' 
cial eorreipondence between the Madraa authoriiiea and the 
Court of Directors ; commtmiealloiw to prirate indiridnalB, and 
memonnduma upon varions suiementa made from time Co time, 
with refercneeto clie important queetion which still continue* la 
occupr so large a share of the public atlenlioii at home. It 
would be difficult to quut« a topic upon which so mncb miicoo. 
ceptioo haa gone abruad. and it ma<? also be said with p«rf^ 
justice, that apoa no other occasion, perbapa, bai ao muoh of 
good intenlions been uaprofltahlr displayed. Hanuftctorm, 
nefchanta, nilpra, and philoaophen bare al) msrat w«U, aad all 
made great Mistakea. At Ae clow of tbe jear I6W, w« bim to 
reeonl the useless expenditure of tbe Court's monej, the break- 
ing down of all llie scienKflc tchemei for rendering England la. 
dependent of America for the production of cotton, the unaltered 
condition of the Indian labourer, and the settled diaaalisractlon 
of Hanchtstet men of buaineas at the failure of tbeii hopea, the 
catastrophe being Httribuled eatirel; to (be Compan;. The 
Government eatnblrsbmenti for improving the cotton euUivatioit 
in Tinnerellr and ColnhatO'e ban only served to demonnnte 
the uttei futilitjief the eip«ru)initt and tbs proprinjr of nOn- 
quiatiing it nitb the lesEl p<naible delay. There are of conra« 
reaiont for believing, that iillimRtMy the superior skill of the 
European and his TrslraatUntlchei^bours'wiH not be witboot 
influence upon the mind of the rfot, but the movement in Uio 
way ol change must originate ivith the people themselves. We 
oannot make thoq iniiative., TlwT have not ■jn\ learned to feel 
diKontented wilh tlif ir own melbods of working, and unClt- that 
reanit is adiicYM there ii but litlle to beexptntcd in tha wa^ o( 
progress. They do not value obt oiviliaatioB, and we in tiaa do 
not undentand the nature of their system of leteHlgiin and

muat increase the number of their wants, and altogether do etray 
with the influence of that axiom wbicb teaches them, that it is

conveying anticipations of a futnte struggle, in tli's lairt of tbe

beyond the fofwer tWer there eiista a formidable and increanng 
dittike to our rule, and dittnul of our pacifying meaaurea. Con- 
tpirtcics, only not dangennie beeaute ill-coTiceivedi, have bees 
already dticovered aeveral timet, tnd in the mindt of the popu- 
lation the cUiefi. who potaesa influence to an extent which we 
bardiy understand, have iiiitilled a hatred of our rule, and a de- 
sire to revenge former defealt, which will render any speedy set- 
tlement of the province difficult, if not impoatibte. At tbe 
sligbtett call from a man of name or influence, the barbarous 
population would ruth to arms, and it behoves the Government 
to be watchful to an extreme degree over a people who, often 
subdued as they have lately been by u«, have yet ever watched 
andgalned an opportunity at which, in a wonderful manner, they 
spring forth, Hinerva like, all armed and ready, and as a swarm of 
locuats inundate the cuunliy which, till then, had been almost 
unaware of their exisience."-»mifci|t 7T««. - ^.^^\f^

LITERATURE AND SCIENCE. 

Mr. B. H. HodgKin, in moiher of his rtluoble ellinognpbicit 
papers, irbiirhvepiibiiibrd in ihe Jonmuiofthe Asliiic Societj 
of Bengal, has invesligBted tlie " Orisin, Locaiion, Numbers, 
Creed, Cuslomi, Chamcirr, niiil Cumliiioii," of tlie Kiicch, 
Bodo, mil DhiniAl peopip, inhibiiing the country from Goalpara 
in AMara to Atiganj in Monnf, skirting ttie mountains o( 
Bhutan and Sikim, anil whom lie coiiaidera "aborigines of Ta- 
mulisn eitnction." 

The Kiccb liad been lone lotnted in the northern part of 
B«ngsl, lonniRla Ualimkot, being the most niuneroiis and pou'er- 
fnl people of Tamnlian exiniction on tint side the Ganges. The 
maaa beranie Miboraedans, and dropped their etbnogriipbie de- 
■igmtion. BdPhanan bas gWtn an ample account of the condi- 
tion of the K6cch, the primitive or Tani Kfccli living In the 
woods, frequenlij changing their abode, is order to cuttivate 
luida (with (he boe) enriciwd by » fiilIoi.v. Tlnj aie clothed 
with cloths made by their women, from cotton grown by them- 
■elreo, sod dyed vilb their own indigo and morinds. Tlieir huts 
areasgoodas the Bengaleie; (lieironly arms are cpeara. They 
sacrifice to the tun, moon, and stare ; they liave priests called 
Deofibi. Disputes are settled by juries of elders. 

Tlie Bodo and Dhiinil tribes occupy the northern and pastern 
■kirts of llie K6crii country, between Ae opeit plains and the 
mooMaint, boih of vbicb akea, generally speaking, ibey avoid, and 
adhere to the gratt forest belt (hat divides the two.froni fifteen to 
twenty miles broad. Tlie Dhimal seem fust passing aivay ; but 
the Bodoare still a very numerous rare, and extend, as foresters, 
OVBT ■ l«rg« portlMi of CtBtrat and Lower Astan. Both the 
BodQ oh] Dhonii aie erratic cultisntora of tlie uild* ; though 
cultirators, they ere nomadic, so little connected with unyone 
spot (ha( nei:lier lanEiiage possesses a name for n village. They 
never cultivBte tie Fame field beyond the BeM>nd year ; but after 
tbe lapse of four or Bre years they freqitenily T«(nm to Ibcir 
old Keids, and resume their cuJliiaiion, if they liave jwt been 
anticipated by otiiera, for tliere is no pretence of appropriation 
other (ban poaseisory. In general tiiey prefer new land to old. 
TTiey discharge tlie dues to tl^e govenimeiit they live under by 
the annual payment of a rupee per Bgricultiiral implement, and 
by • tribute of.laboiu- for (he scveieign. Tlie Jienio of Kamrup 
bmve abando^ fWr 'errilie ^ropeftsities, imcf have become, ac- 
cordii^ to Major Jenkins, " a remarkably line peasaiitry, and 
bare very superior cultivaiion of Ihe permanent kind." Esch of ihe

"niey have no public laws or polity whatever, not even tracea of

nilies ef from (en to forty houtes. which they are perpetually 
abrfUng from place to place. Crimes of a deep dye me almost

Of learning and letle[a,"tlie Bodo and DhimSf axe^ and 
e been, totally deroid. Their cardinal numbers 
igi( tha Bodo, and ten amongst the Dbimilsj neither 
auy onnnala. Their region, like their manners, is dis- 
bnguiihed by the absence ot everyihing shocking or ridiculona, 
coofliting Itself almost eiclUfively to propitiating the superior 
powers by offerings and sacriftcf s. Their priests are in no way 
lUsiinguisbed from the rest of (he community. "I have no he- 
sitation," observes Mr. Hodgson, " in calling the religion of the 
amiable Bodo and DhimSI the religion of nature, or rather, tbe 
natural religion of man. It consists of the Worship of the most 
s^iBgandinfluentisI of sensible objects, the starry host, and of 
the tetreiieeleasenta, with a vague but impressive reverence of the 
powera displayed by (bese aenub)* objecla to an immaterial or 
tamal source, unknown, indeed, lu( slilt adored as divine, ami 
eren as a ditine Unity." TTieir languages, liowever, have no 
If^. '" "God," for "aoul," for "heaven,* for "hell," for 
"•in," for "piety," for "prayer." for "repentance." Their 
gods are many, and are all void of dcflnile moral attribmca; yet 
llieir oaths and ordeals ate appeals to the moral nature of the 
deity. Tbe manners of Ihe Bodo and Dliimil are a plrawng 
nediam between tbe unsophisticBled rouglmess of (heir talgl.lud 



neighbours, and the dry ajtiBciid smoothness of those on the 
plain*. Mr. Hodgson tvinds up Ids acrount of these tribes by a 
sketch of tlieir character, which he represents as " full of 
amiaMe qualities, and almost entirely free A'om such as are un- 
amlabla. They are intelligent, docile, free from all hard or ob- 
trusive prejudices, honest and truthful in deed and word, and 
industrious in Ihtir onn nay oflile. They are totally frte from 
arrogance, revenge, crnelly, or pride; yet (hey ara not devoid 
of spirit, and frequently exhibit symp(oms even of (hat hasty 
temperament, which is so rare, at least in its manifests (ions, in 
(he East," 

Cup(ain J. D. Cuniimgham, in a Note "on the Limits of 
Perpetual Suow in (be Himalayas," published in (lie same 
work, combats some uf the opimons of Ueutcnaiit Straebey,

In taking t, vettodpect af.the-hiBlory oC British India 
during the paet fear, we cannot but be atruck by the mag-

Hiia long-foteaeen, perbapa long-deKtred, consummation 
.of OUT territorial acqiuaitiont in India, by the annibHation 
' '•f-erery rival and indqteiuletit atata within Ma *ait rir- 
CUmference, affords not only a aecmity for nninterrupted 
- ly iaif, but as apfovtMuty aad mtuM far improviNg ibe 
,poGtical and social condition of tbe pojralation of that 
^ ooontry, which have never been yet available by any of, ita 
irnkn. The oaly enemy we hare now to provide agaiaat is 
inreaUty onrselvea,— our own maladministratioD, irtkareby 
tbe minds of the people, instead of being with us, shell be 
-.aliaaatgd from ua, and opposed to our rule. DtbtUare 
•nperbot baa bitberto been die moat indiapenaable fuHttion 
, of our imperial authority in ladia; we may now direct our 
' fl^ecial and exduaive attention to the oUmt no lesa aaaential 
fanetimof C0Dqaei«ra,jKn-cfraniftr>(4tf. 

New circnmslaiiceB may, bowerer, breed new dangers. 
Onr Indian Government, which haa bad no experience of 
«ti bdcyon a aMa of tbiufpi, aaay find that tbe<app«ehen- 
non of eztemal enemiea, — the pressure from wiihout,— 
, k^ tbe machinery of government in whobaame azarctse, 
iwbibt it diaripated tbe etements of iateraal di«conta*t. In 
a society so peculiarly conatitnted as that of the East, and 
watrangtly divarHfiedaathatof India,it.ia dittcnlt toaal- 
vnlMa i prion, and to predict widi any certainty, the edhcta 
;of political slagnatton, when that undefinable dread which 
foreign invasion inspires has been banished ; of that tor- 
pid inaction, so insupportable to the restiess people of 
Earope, that it often dlspoaea them, fiir' the aake of ex- 
dtement, to internal ferment and agitation. Possibly, tbe 
ncaa of India, in whom tbe eentiiaeabof patsioliacB ia aaid 
to be extinct, and some of whom regard'a state tffprofaimd, 
■Unbroken repose, — an abstraction from every emotion but 
:ibo mere eonsciouaness of existence, — as. their enthaaasia, 
'irill become mote thoroughly reconciled to tlteir fan, as 
•nbjects of an alien power, by a vacancy of mental occu- 
1 fatum which Eoroptana find it difficult to^andure J^oaMbly, 
an the other hand, it nay engender new feelinga iriUiin 
them, and fill them with new aapiratioaa.

It ahould never be forgotlen, thou^ It did e«c*pe the 
memory ot Mr. Cobden, Ural, in 1846. when the opportunitr 
oITered to establish a Mtttement on I.abuan, that tile Manclieiter 
Cliamber of Commerce, Mr. Cobdirn's coadjutora, presented n 
memorial to jir Robert Peel, then Minister, Imploring him not 
to let it escape, and " not to suffer an; delay in securing • po- 
aition so important, and in every pomt of view so desirable, for 
Ihe convenience and protection of our China trade, as a refuge 
for our shipping in case of distress, as a butwarh in the event of 
war, and «« a cenlial dep&t for our trade m the Eaatem ArchU 
pelago." 

The conclusion of (his extraordlnar]^ haiangue odntains the 
important corollary, or conclusion : — 

" If people tell me that I want to dismember the emigre aad 
abandon the clonlta, I aay 1 want EngllihiMn wha ara frea to poa- 
seia them. Now, I ahall be told tbt I an going to leave tbe coa. 
nection between the mother country and the colonica of so fnil and 
fragile a character, that It will surtly he aetered. Well, I adaft 
that the political conoccllon between the colonlea and the motbcc 
country ranat becoise lest and less atrong, and ultimately I can see 
that It will be bnt a mere thread of connectlan, poTltlcMly apenUng. 
Bat, on the other band, by giving the coloniea the right of aelf- 
gotcrnaient. with a right good nill ihaking handa with them, yon 
will retain the connection, eommereialli nnd siorally, far more 
atron^ly than.you could by any politii 



ia by tt 
country. Now, we do n 
to this country by any 
dple ol free trade, we t 
kind wm teach thera t 
trade with n* better Uia 



■J of ai 



trade with «. Well, if the eolonie* can 
rlaewkerc, tbcT will be bound to as by th« 
inaancts ol aeli -interest, and will not desire to d'al with any onn 
else. In abandoning our moaopallea, we only do It for tbe sake of 
the trade of the whole world. But some persona may eay that the 
colonies arc taltiable as places for the emigration of our auperabnn- 
dant popalation. Will you give up this meana of giving meat to 
this surplus population J 1 beliete, by giving Ihem aelf-govem- 
ment, they trill be far better nulleta for our population than tbey 
are under colonial misgoTernmrnt. What Is tbe fact bow? Why, 
more EngHahmen go Ihe Uaitvd States, whlob is iKrfsetly indepeodent 
el ua, than to all onr colonies throagbout the wnrld." 

Mr. Cobden wonnd up Ills apeech with the usual argument, 
that, by thus dealing with our cojonies, we should be enabled 
lo reduce our expenditure, "not X10,000,000 only, but 
^15,000,000, annually." 



A recent visitor at Shaiighae, In China, writes: " Amw^ tbe 
poor seen In the streets yesterday was a lad, eight or ten yean of 
age, led by bia parents, who represented themsdvea as being in 
great diatress. so poor that lliey must die of starvation unJeaa 
tbey could tH tlinr litile son. Tbe^ were seeking for a buyer, 
begging that some one vrauld show pity on Ihem. and purchase 
the lad. This i* tbe first ease ot the kind that has come to my 
knowledge in this city. Girls are often sold, but boys seldom." 

Tlte Rock Snake, or, as it is sometimes called, the BulTliIoe 
Snake, tvhirli is common in Ceylon, grows occasionally to an 
enormous liie ; in iJie jun){leB of the norlbeni province, wfaicb 
swarra with herds of small deer, specimens are occasionally seen 
nearing tlic extreme siie oF thirty feet long. — Ceslon Obsrretr. 

Mr. Oxiey stales that the black cobra snake of Singapore poi- 
■easea llie peculiar property of ejecting venom from its mouth. 
He lias killed several from 4^ to 5^ feet in length. " When 
attacked, it erects tbe body and diUles the skin oii either side of 
tlw head, uttering a noise lilie an irritated cat. and if approached. 
it throws, to the distance of from six to eight feel, i 
fluid of most poisonous quality." / ^

SUMMARY AND REVIEW. 

By the present mail we learn that the surface of poUtical 
a&in in India, which have beeo for the last two or three 
months almoat stBgn3.iit, is slight]}- rulHed hy the audacity 
of a petty rajah in the Tibet couDtry, who has %et our Ga- 
it at defiance, by eeiiing, imprisoniDg, and treating 



with harsbneis and insolence two British travellers, Dr. 
CampbeU, superintendent of the Sanataiium at Darjeeling, 
and Dr. Hooker, son of Sir W. J. Hooker (the illustrious 
botanist), who wsre on a tour, partly commercial, partly 
scientific, in the Himalayan country, some of the resulta of 
which we have reported in preceding numhers of the 
Indian Mail. 

It appears that Dr. Hooker having been botanizing alone 
in Nspal and the neighbouring districts, orders were sent to 
Dr. Campbell, directing him to assist Dr. Hooker on his 
arrival in Sikhim. Ha joined that traveller, and they ven- 
tured to trespass across the boundary-Une which Chmesa 
jealouay prescribes aa the ne pIii* ultra of Europeans in 
"nbet. They were civilly warned off the Mcred territory by 
a Chinese f(uurd, and were about, to obey the injunction, 
when a party of sixty men, belonging to the Rajah of Sikhim, 
rushed upon them, threw them on the gtonnd, and were 
with difficulty restrained by the lama and the Chinese guard 
from putting them to death. The two gentlemen were 
bound with ropes, which were employed as a means of tor- 
ture, to extort answers to question8(the cords being tightened 
and drawn back with violence, occasioning aevere pain), 
and finally conveyed to rigorous confinement, where they 
remained at the date of the latest advices, the Rajah re- 
fusing to release them. Some accounts represent that the 
Rajah's motive for this arbitrary act is a desire to enforce 
attention to certun representations made by him to our 
Government respecting real or fancied wrongs, to which no 
answer had been returned i other accounts say that he or 
his dewan had a personal grudge towards Dr. Campbell, 
which he chose in this manner to gratify. It is with more 
probability conjectured that the rulers of the 'nbetan 
states, partaking of the jealousy felt by the Chinese Govern- 
ment, and aware that Enropeau "Imellers" have been 
aomeiimea the precuraois of invading armies, look upon 
these visitors aa spies, and that the Sikhim Rajah may have 
assumed that he had a right to e^cclude such travellers from 
his territory, no stipulations to admit them having been in* 
trodaced into the treaty of Titalaya in ISIT, by which the 
East-India Company made over in full sovereignty to the 
Sikhimputtee Rajah, his heira or successors, " ah the hilly 
or mountainous country sitnate to the westward of the 
Mechee river, and to the westward of the Teesta river, 
formerly possessed and occupied by the Rajah of Nepal, 
ceded to the Honourable East-India Company by the 
treaty of peace signed at Segoulee." The Sikhimputtee 
Rajah thereby engaged, for himself and hia successors, —

Upon these conditioDt, the Earl of Moir^, on the part of 
lihe Company, guaranteed to the Rajah and hit euccessora 
" the full and peaceable posseaaion " of the hilly country 
ahoye specified, ivhich, not being a conquest of much value, 
was erected into a separate alale, in conformity with the then 
policy of f^irdling our tertitoriea with small dependencies. 

The Calcatfa Star slatee, that, — 

" For some time past, the Superintendent of Daijeeliog, an sctWe 
and intelligent officer, has been engaged in atti^mpts to extend the 
commerce between the British atatioo of DBrjceUag and tho nelgh- 
bouriog districts. He has, with this liew, made manytrips Into tbe 
Interior to discoTer the resources nt the country and the wants of the 
people, as nell as to oscertain tire best routes, and whatlmproie- 
menU might he made in them. Tliis enterprizf hai been an offence 
to tbe ^ikhim ministers, nho no doubt Imagine these inquiries to be 
a preliminary to re-anneiation of the cooatry. They have, there- 
fore, long been at feud with Dr. Campbell, and songht erery oppor- 
tunity to hinder or thwart him. Cnmpldnts have been further lodfted 
before tlie Snpreme GoTernmeat, but it appears bare been nnheeded 
—not even anawered." 

The Englishman gires the following account of the Rajah 
and his people : — 

" The SikhiiQ Riijab passesaes ■ terrilory on our frontier nearly 
due north from Celcottn, between the coiintrie» of Nepal and 
Boolan, about the size of a large English connly. About sixty 
yeara ago, the Qoorkas Invaded It, and expelled the Rajah. The 
country remained tributary to Nepal until the close at the Nepal 
war, in iai6, wbtn the Rajah, who had taken part with the British, 
was restored to hisdominlon!, and they haie erer since been peaceably 
possessed by the same family. Bounded on the north and east by the 
CblnesetemtarleB.tbecoonectlon ofthis petty state with those power- 
ful neighbours has always been Intimate, wbile very little IntercoDrse 
was kept up with tbe British, until Lord Auckland, being desirnna 
of establlsliiog a sanatHrium in Bengal, obtaiord from the Riyah the 
cssaioo of Darjeeling. which, bavloir an eleTation of 7,000 feet, wai 
mppoaed very suitable. The purpose was, however, abandoned on 

has ever since been the resort of private indivlilnals, as a refuge 
from the heat of the plains, and has acqnirod a high character for 
its salubrity. Tbe iiiliahltanta of the Sikbio country, who are 

well disposed towardi their European acquaintances, and not at all 
■verse to Intereaurse with them. A. jealousy has, however, always 
been displayed by the Rajnh as to strangers penetrating into the 
coantry, whieh has been believed to be occasioned by Chinese In- 
fluence. It has, at ti^es, led to complaints as to the conduct of 
travellers, and about four years ago, the officer in charge of the 
station of Dnrjeellng received a severe reprimand from the Bengal 
Goreroment on account of some transgresaiou of limits." 

Prompt meBsurea have been taken to chastise the pre- 
sumption of this petty potentate. The Bfaagnlpore hill 
Tangers were sent oS' without delay to the station of Dar- 
jeeling. A corps of infantry at Berhampore detached aeva- 
ral companies in the same direction, and the l6th native 
grenadiers were to leave Calcutta in tbe course of a few 
days for the Sanatarium, having been preceded by a small 
detail of arUllery from Dum-Dum. If the Rajah attempt 
renetanee, it must soon be crushed, notwithstanding the 
natural difficulties of a sub- alpine country. The imme- 
diate advance on Sikhim was said to be impossible, aa the 
ground waa thickly covered with snow. 

Amongst the rumours connected with thig occurrence, 
which seems to have excited a ferment almost unexampled 
in that part of out dominions, ia one which traces it to tlie 



agency oF the ei-Ranee of Lahore, now resident at I^tna, 
who ia said to be disposing of her valuable jewdlery, and 
employing the proceeds in the furtherance of hsr intrigues 
to embroil our Government with that of Nepal and with 
the hill states in that quarter. 

Another occtvrence is, with more likelihood, ascribed to 
this restless and ambitious woman. A deep-laid conspi- 
racy has been discovered, according to the D^lu GazHtt, at 
Lahore, for carrying off the young Maharajah Dhuleep 
Singh, which was to have been effected whilst the Iroope 
were being reviewed by Lord Dalhousie. Some of the 
agents of the ex- Ranee, it is said, had tampered with the 
men of Prendergast'a Irregular Cavalry corps, who proved 
true, and gave notice of the fact to their commanding oScer. 
Nine of the emissaries had been taken ; they proved to be 
ci-deeant " kommedans " of Runjeet's better time. The 
little prince was to be sent to Futteh Glwr, under charge of 
Dr. Login, escorted bf a strong party of cavalry, infantry, 
and artillery. Chutter Singh, Shere Singh, and the other 
rebellious Sikh Sirdars, were likewise to be removed from 
the Punjab, eome say to Calcutta. Norayen Singh was to 
be transported. 

Lahore was a scene of gaiety. The Governor-General 
had arrived there on the 2SIh November. The Europaan 
and native infantry regiments and the cavalry were dnnrn 
up to receive his Lordship, and the usual salutes fired. 
Mr. John Lawrence, together with the other members of 
tbe Board, and the Rajahs and Sirdars, were in-attendance 
on the roadside when his Lordahip and Lady Dalbonaie 
made their appearance. The young Maharajah had paid the 
Marquess a visit of ceremony. His Lordship announced his 
intention of holding levees and reviewing the several 
corps. The ceremony of investing Sir Walter Gilbert with 
the Order of the Bath was to take place on a scale of mag- 
nificence equal to that of the investiture of Major-Genend 
Sir John Littler and Sir Dudley Hill in Calcutta; no less 
than 17,000 troops would bs assembled. Sir C. Na^ez 
arrived in the city on the 30th of November. The Marqoeu, 
as his health is much improved, will, after visiting Mooltan, 
proceed by steamer to Bombay. Some accounts report 
that he will accompany tbe Marchioness to Sues ; others 
that he will proceed from Bombay to Madras and Calcutta. 
We mnst recmve all these reports in future with less con- 
fidence than ever, since it is now asserted that the state- 
ments circulated for six months past, and rdtarated "upoB 
authority," of the speedy return of Sir C. Napier, are totally 
groundless, and that " he never had' tbe slightest inteatioB. 
to return to Europe until the period of his service expires 1" 

TranquiUity still reigned throughout the Punjab. Th« 
expedition from Peshawur into the Eusofzye coantry, under 
Col. Lawrence, to which reference was made in our last 
Summary, had received ordere not to follow the malcontents 
into tbe hills, and, by laat accounts, was waiting at tiie 
entrance of the pass for orders from Goremtnent. 

Complaints of the oppression of his subjects in Cash- 
mere are renewed against Maharajah Gholab Singh, He 
is eud to have monopolized every article of trade, even 
grain, reselling the commodities at cent, per cent, profit ; 
that he over-taxes the shawl-workers ; and that he has a 
force of 25,000 men engaged in expeditions against hia 
neighboun. The Bombay Timei observes truly — 

" That tbere is so strong a tendency in certain qnattera to malign 
the Jamoo chief, Oiat the accounti of hii emelttea mut b« rccelTCd

The tame paper reports another afiraf of a serious 
atora at Hfierabad, betwten the riral aecta of Mnaul- 
mans, the Sooneee and Sheeaha, ariaing from a trivial in- 
cident. A Sheeah, at a moaque, vexed at his own in- 
ftraaitaes, cnr s s d Ua agt^ and having eaoplayed the vaT' 
mealar tarm for "agt." otiur, the name of the Soonee 
«iliph, a stir took place amongst the Soonees present, which, 
BScoMaqmnca of other provocations, roused tbe Mood of 
flie sect (to which the Nisam belonga), who are tbe most 
powrafnl of the two, and for serenl hours the city was the 
secM of tomnlt and outrage. At length the Kotwal, with 
sfcodj of MCAnb meroenaries, put an end to the con- 
flict. This occurrence has led to the establishment of Arab 
psats IbTongh the whole of the Residency basilars. It has 
keen ahngn deetoed highly expedient that tbe Arabs should 
InveM GtOa to do with the Residency localities aa pos- 
dble; a large body of these turbulent mercenailea are 
«9w perMianently poated onder the very noses of the 
Bfibit aathoritiea. 

Aceording to the Uadraa ^eelator, the Resident at 
Hyderahnd faai been Buthoiised to adopt a step whi^ is 
Hkely to bring matters to an iaane with the Nisam. It is 
said that Geoeial F^er was charged with a metaage to hia 
ffi^mcoa from Lord Dalhousie, indmatii^ that, as the ad- 
vice and remonatianeeH of the British Government, idthough 
^eu tendered, had failed of producing any eSect, they would 
M loagar be thought necessary. Tbe Nisam, however, is 
if Ihe same dme to underatand that hia pecuniary engage- 
fciita with the Company must be fulfilled, aa regards the 
fMnc, nndor pain of ibm using measures for tbeir own 
UHunifleation. T%d« baa been given him for the payment 
«( Us ontatuding debt, now amounting to 54 lacs of 



rupeea, notil the end of December, 1850 1 but should he 
meanwhile suffer the pay of the contingent to fall into 
arrears, the Governor- General will take measures for the 
adjustment of both old and new dainu, without any ad- 
rertence to tbe pleasure of hia Highness. 

Attempts are made to get up an opposition at the Preti- 
dencies agunat tbe Act for aboliahing the exemption of 
British snl^ta from the jorisdiction of the Company's 
Cnminal Courts, — stigmaticed as " Bethune's BUdt Act,"— 
which, according to tbe Btt^JMAmao, " will take away tho 
birthright of British anhjects in that country, and leave 
Ihem at the mercy of the corrupt and incompetent tribunala 
of tbe Gaat-India Company." We have offered a few 
remarhs upon this propoted law in another place, and 
merely add the following extract ot aa article upon this 
subject in the Frimd of India .—

are made the subject of comment, aometimea, at least, in< 
ndioue. The Huriaru, with reference to the mrcom stance

At Madras the entire fiulure of the monaoon was tbe chief 
topic of intereat. " Instead of the customary heavy showers 
which viait us in the month of November," says the Atht' 
tuaini, " we have recuved only a few occasional driblets, 
quite inadequate either to satisfy the demands of cultivation, 
or the longings of those who look forward to the raina of 
the monsoon by way of a pleaaant change from the tropical 
routine of unclouded sunshine and clouds of diut." Lord 
Gough ia expected to pay Madras a visit on hia yny 
to England, and the sheriff, in obedience to a requisition, 
bad convened a public meeting for the purpose of couiider- 
lug the beet mode of testifying respect to him. 

The local incidents at Bombay are devoid of interest. 

The Cef Ion jouroala, down to tbe 14tb December, con- 
tain few matters which invite notice. 'The departure of Sir 
B. Tennent for Europe was a topic of general comment; the 
Obterver admits that " the colony, in parting with the 
Colonial Secretary, parts with her cleverest man." The 
coffee crop ia expected to fall abort of the estimate formed 
at the commencement of the seaaon. The rice market waa 
aasuming an alarming aapeet : " Tbe coolies on tbe estates

counta of the failure of tho nordi-eaat monioon rains, od 
wUch the rice harvest of aouthern India aad the aupply to

The Hong-Kong papers announce the complete success 
of the expedition under Commander Hay against the for- 
midable pirate Shap'ng-taai ; of 64 pireiical veasels, 58 
were destroyed, withont any loss whatever on our part. 
The event ia of some historical importance, inasmuch as it 
is the first time, we believe, in which the British and the 
Chinese navies joined in friendly co-operation SRainet a 
common enemy. Commander Hay pays a high compli- 
ment, in his despatch, to Major>General Wong, who 
" proved himself," he says, " a gallant, active, and efScient 
ally." It appears that her Majesty's sloop CoJumWne, 
Commander Hay, her Majesty's steamer Btry, Commander 
Willcox, and the East- India Company's steamer Phhgtthon, 
left Hong-Kong on the Sth of October, and, proceeding 
along the coast, arrived at Hainan on the I3ch, where they 
met with a most cordial reception from the Chinese autho- 
rities, who prepared a small force of eight war-juaks to co- 
operate with them, and offered a Mandarin to accompany 
them, who was accordingly received on board the Fury. 
The squadron set sail again from Hainan on the I4th, and 
after a close search all along the coaat, they fell in with the 
fleet on the 20lfa of October, in the Bay of Tonquin. Tho 
force consisted of Shap'ng-tsai's junk, mounting 42 guns, 
16 junks carrying 28 to 34 guns each, 42 junks mth 13 to 
15 gnns each, and a few smaller janks. Only six amall 
junks escaped; 1,700 men ware killed, and upward* of 
1,000 driven on shore, where they were speared by the 
Cochin- Chinese soldiers; some 160, being made prisoners 
by her Majesty's forces, were subsequently handed over to 
the Chinese authorities at Hainan. The chief, Shap'ng- 
tsai managed to effect his escape in a small boat juat before 
his own junk blew up. 

Angry communicalions were still passing between the 
Macao government and the Chinese viceroy respecting the 
murder of Governor Amaral, and the refusal to deliver up 
his head and hand. The tone of Seu's letters to the Macao 
Council is haughty and contemptuous; he concludes his 
last letter, " this is all I have to communicate to the de- 
apalcb of the council." The reply of the latter contains, 
amongst other strong expressions, the following; "Nothing 
now is left them but to bold you responsible for the assas- 
sinatiou of Governor Amaral, for the retention of his head 
and hand, for the violation of the rights of the Portugueae 
nation, and for all consequences that may result from this 
inhuman and nnheard-of act, and from the proceedinga of 
the Chinese authorities at Canton with regard to it." 

The China Mail states that the Spanish minister, beaides 
opening diplomatic relationa on the part of bis own govern- 
ment with the imperial commissioner, has been negotiating 
for the delivery of the head and hand of the Governor of 
Macao.

SEIZURE OF DRS. CAMPBELL AND BOOKER. 

Darjt^aig,NoB.^.—Tit. Campbell, with Dr. Hooker, crossed 
the frontier, and went into Tibet; we do not know how Ibey 
managed to pass the gusrd of one officer and twenty men, but 
tbef did so, and n>n>ained Tour days in Tibet. On their return 
tbey went to Tumlooog, the Rajah's winter residence in Sikbia. 
He would not, and did not, receive either of tbem ; when tbey 
determined to go to Cliola, a lofty mountain, two marches o^ 
although they were warned not to cross the frontier. They 
reached Cbols, snd Ending Choombec, the RajiU's lummer resi- 
dence in Tibet, to be only one march furtlier, they determined to 
see it, knowing well it is scrosi tbe boundary and in Tibet: 
tbey passed the fatal boundary, and were seixed upon by a guard 
of aliiy soldiers, snd carried to Choombee, prisoners, whence 
tliey weie ordered to be taken prisoners to the Sikhim Hsjsh 
St Tumloong. On their arrival, the Rqsh wrote s letter to the 
Governor- General, inclosed in one to Cspt. Bishop, officiating 
superintendent, both containing a long liat of complaints sgwnst 
Dr. Campbell, and stating that tlie Rajsh would keep him a 
prisoner until he received an an stver from the Governor -Gen era], 
to whom he has been writing for three years without receiving 
an answer. The letter, dated ' Tumloong, llth November,' was 
received at cutcherry on the 13tb, partly interpreted, hot not 
wholly translated until the IStli, when Cspt. Bishop had left, 
and Capt. Bying taken his place. The supplies of rice, &c 
from the Terai to Tumloong, I beliei'e, were ordered to be cut 
off, and were bo; a requisition was sent for the Bhau- 
gulpore bill rangers, snd s letter of remonalrsnce to the 
Rnjab, requesting liim to send in Dr. Campbell, and' 
depend on the Governor- General for justice and impar- 
tiality. The Tibetans hold the Sikhim Kajah responsible ; and 
between the two 1 hare nodoubt he f^eli himself inaGi. ETery 
precaution is made to defend this place, on acconnt of s gsther- 
ing of the Hill peopU on the banks of the Rungeet The church 
is turned into an ammunition store ; the cntcherry is occupied 
night and day by nine Europeans and as many sqioys, with the 
two 6-poander gnns, — Hvrharv, Nor. 89. 

DarjtiHtig, nov. S4. — Dr. Campbell is still in confinement, 
and not even nllowed to write to his wife ; but yesterday a chup ■ 
prastee came from him with a mesnage, saying that be was ilive 
and well, but begged that no sotdieis might be sent to Sikhim. 
People seem to think thst he will i.ot be relesseduntil tbe Rajah 
receives s commanicstion from Government to thst effect. All 
the servants in this place are snned with thick sticks, and most 
of them with swoids ; and list evening, when out walking, tve 
met a psriy of armed sepoys, and saw numbers of them about 
the alatron. The bazar is almost empty, so many natives have 
run away from the station, on sccoant of the reports they have 
heard. I believe there is no real danger now, but Capt. Byng 
seems to think it better to be prepared in case of any thing hap- 
pening, for perhaps if the Rsjah heard we were not prepared for 
any disturbance, it miglit tempt him to take us by surniise. — 
Ibid. Nov. 30. 

Private letters, dated Daijeeling, Nov. S7, state thst Mrs; 
Campbell had received aletter fram herhasband, telling her (bat 
be had been most cruelly treated, and did not see any protped 
of his being realeased tor some time yet 

Tbe Eattern Star gives an extract of a letter from a corre- 
spondent, dated S6[h Nov., which ststes thst "A letter no*- 
received from the Bajah of Sikhim yesterday, in answer to tta* 
forwarded by Capt. Byng, immediately on the receipt of the- 
news of tbe imprisonment of Drs. Compbdl and Hooker, The 
Rajsh was warned of the consequences of detaining Dr. CatnpbeB 
an hour after he might receive Capt Byng's despatch ; but be- 
hsl detained him, and in his reply does not hint at giving hins. 
up, until communications from the British Government reacb 
him. It is said thst he has hitherto Bought the attention of 
Govenunent to his wrongs, bncied or real, in vain ; and that bv 
is resolved not to let the present opportunity slip of enfofcii^ 
respect to bis petitions." 

The CalmUa Star contains the following extract of a letter 
from Daijeeling. dated November 97:— " Tbe treatment whldi 
Dr. Campbell has received has been of the moat shameful 
description, and must entail on the Rajah of Sikbim the ven- 
geance of the British Government. It appears tlist Dr. Camp- 
bell woi proceeding towards tbe Tibetin frontier, when he was 
met by a Chinese guard of about 100 men, wbo in civil terms. 
requested the travellers not to cross the frontier. Upon this, 
they prepared to retrace their eteps, when a party of Sikbimite* 
rushed upon then, threw them to tbe ground, and with difficulty

DisiL-aatKca AT BADLTiH.—E^iIract of a letter from Bauleah, 
?7th Oct.—" A moat furious affray took place this morning be. 
tween the Mahomedans and Hindoos, in consequence oF the 
de terminal ion of the former to slaugliler cows at the Durifab, in 
the Banr, surrounded by Hindoo merchants, on tbe occasion of 
the festival Buhreed, against tbe remonstrance of the latter. 
Tbe number of men assembled on both lidei was no less tlion 
5,000— the MshomedaDS were the most powerful, and well 
armed. The Hindoos, having been previouily bound down tiy 
tlie maglslrale to keep the peace, were not allowed to carry any 
weapuos with them. The conscquenA has been most lament- 
able i tnenty men have been most severely wounded, one or 
tn-o of them so dangerously that they are not expected to live. 
The Hindoos have sufTered tlie most ; they were not only beaten 
and wounded, but received all kinds of insult; one man among 
thereat iraa bound to a post nesrlhe Durgab, and beef and blood 
were put into his mouth. Tlic liousc of another (aud he was the 
Judge's tberuiodar) was plundered; two or three other shop* 
were also broken open and plunilered in the same manner. Tbe 
magiilmle was an the spot, but he was too late."— CU Sfar.

are tboae of I.icuL Brockman, of H. M.'s 5Dth, nho very mys- 
tcriotisly disappeared during (he lir>t Sikh campaign. A corre-

CEYLON. 

At the close of the Ecasion of tbe LegialatiTc Council, tbe 
following protest was recordod in the minulesof the Council;'— 

" Pbot«8t. — In accordance with the permission granted by ttaa 
aoTemor in Council, on the 23rd October, 1348, we, the unde- 
signed Members of the Legislaliie Conndl, protest ag^ut th* eoa- 
linnance of the payment of tbe contrihntian of 34,000t. towards A0 
military expenditure, for the fnilowing reasons : — ■ 

" 1st. Recauae no such contribnlion is exacted trom any otter «f 
her Majesty's colonial poucsiiona. 

" and. Becanae It was Inied under a miaapprehenrfon, to Ae 
effect that the islaod had, at the time of Its imposition, a large mz- 

Sins revenue, whereas this surpina was entirely tbe rcaalt of pcBil 
sheries, which han ceased, and the sole of the einnnmoD in the 
Goieroment Stores, or, In other words, of the diapoial of aocunn- 
lated property, and not from any cmraat or coatliinoas aonrcea o( 

" 3rd. Becaute the eolaoy, hadae thus been impoTerished by (he 
dispoaalof its occamalatedsualth, Badfurtherraors by the sale of 
fonr-Gftbs of tbe donamoa gardens, which, wkeo In tlia hands of 
Government were so much capital, ii now placed nailer the Decesatty 
of opening new roads, and dereloplng means of camnKmicatlng 
throughout the Island to a greater eitent than at any former period. 

" 4th. Because this colony alreadypays aboot 7b,000l. per ouikb 
tovrards the military eipcnditure, in the shape of eolooiat pay and 
allowances, payments towards military works, and colonial commil- 

" 5lh. lAstly, and chieay, becanae Ceylon already contribntea to 
therevennes of Great Britain upwards of 600,0001. perannnm intbe 
shape of import duty leiied on Ceylon coffee, and the nndenigned 
consider that, while thus Indirectly taxed Air the aopport of Oie 
general revenue of the mother- country, their military eapoiditum 
mgbt to be provided for also by Great BritaiD."

" H. M.'a nloop CUuniuw, Chokeum, Cocbin-Cbina, 
" Oct. 23, ISIS. 

" Sir,— I htre the satisfacCion to report lo your Excelleiicy 
tlte great cuccesa of tbe expedition you did me ibe honour to 
place under my command : S6 piratical vescela, mounting about 
1,200 gnna, with crews of 3,n00men, haye been totally deslroyed 
by 6re ; and, by the blessing of God, wilbout the loss of one 
Sfe of the ofBecrs and men under my orders. 

"After leaiiiiE Htmg-Kong on the 8ili of October, I aearcbed 
Ibe harbours of Concock, Saltci, Si. Jobn's, Mong, Mamee, 
Sungyue, and Tieiipak, and proceeded to Nowchou. From 
infonnation received there, I determined to proceed to Hoi-how 
in Hainan, inside tbe shoals, and throogb the junk passage, for 
X found good pilots, and jutiks with fourteen feet draught going 
through, and *e drew littie more than fifteen feet. Moreover, 
Siapng-tsaibadboaited he would go where English ebipsdared not 
follow bim; this vaunt I deCetmined to belie. We reached Hoi- 
how on tbe J3lh, and found tbe Governor- General Ho, whom I 
Tisited at tbe capital, in great fear of the pirates, und vvilh a 
most friendly feeling to the English nation. He immediately 
ordered a mandarin named Wong to proceed with me, taking 
■nith him eight war Junks, and I gave him a pusage, to ptevent 
delay, on board tbe Pary. On tbe 16th we reached Chooksban, 
which the pirate fleet bad left tire days before, and we found 
the same tad story of towna destroyed, men murdered, and 
women taken away, that mark his track along the coast- On 
the IStb,' we fell in with one of bia look-out vessel*, which 
Inring got into aballow water, was overtaken by the PMtgethtm, 
■nd destroyed by ber boats under tbe command of Mr. Simp- 
■os, first officer. On the 19th we rcBcbed Hoo-nong, his re- 
ported haunt, and found he bad gone about twelve miles further, 
and [ feared we had lost him ; but (bat invaluable officer, Mr. 
Daniel R. Caldwell, inpreseed me so strongly with the correet- 
Sess of bia infonnation, that I decided on a reconnaisance in tbe 
fVegtthoiit in spite of our ehortnesa of fnel ; and proceeding 
in to Chokeum for that purpose on Ibe 20th, saw ihlrly-seren of 
■he fleet under weigh. From 7 o'clock until Ir. m., like terriers 
at a rat. hole, we hunted for tbe channel. Then a pilot managed 
to escape from lh« thore. 1 proceeded in the Fkltgcthon, with 
Uw /uy sfitetn and Colvahim in low, over tlie bar, fourteen feet 
(nnd), and at 4.10 had the pleasure of finding all the ships 
wamily engaged. At S.S Shapng.tssi's jui^k blew up with a 
tremendous crash, and at 5,S0 they had ceased firing. Before 
B o'dock twenty-uren were in flames, and the squadron in poll- 
tion to Uockade the rirer. On (he SIst October the steamers 
-•nd boata destroyed twenty-fonr more, and nine of them gave 
iJent. Geo^eHancockin a paddle-box boat of Ibe Aery, assisted 
by CapC Moore, R.M. , and Mr. Close, acli^ mate, with Mr, Leao, 
anopporhiDity of diatingnlshing himself. iVo large junks turned 
to bay, to d^end tbe retreat of tbe reit, but Mr. Hancock so 
haiidled his boat and her gun, that, aftei an hour and twenty 
minutes, be had beaten them from their guns, and carried them 
by boBrdiog' without loai, and then pursued and destroyed the 
other seren. Mr. Haneodi's boldiiesa in attacking, and correct 
judgment in managing tbis affair, are worthy of (he highest 
pluae ; and Capt. Moore, R. M., Mr. N. N. C. Leao, a Brazilian 
Uentenant,and Mr. F. A. Close, aciirg mate, gave him the greatest 
Hsistance. On the SSnd I proceeded in the PMegtthm and 
boats to destroy all that were left. We found (bat the man- 
darins bad destroyed four, and we finished two olhers. The low 
tat iilanda at Ibe nouth of (he river were at times covered with 
wen deserted froiD tbe jnnks, yet afraid of the Cochin- Chinese, 
Vfas had aaaemblcd in great nimibers to attack them. Tbe 
■h^' bOMte and naall-onn men baraased anddertroyed many by 
cpattant fire of shell and grape, whilst the Cochin- Chinese 
dcttrojed aod captured the rest. From the best information, it 



appears that the fleet conuated of siity-four vessels of wmr, 
which maybe diosed as fallo\vei —

"Of these, two amnll of tbe third class, and f«nir of the fonrCb,

and the mandarin assures me he will shortly destroy him— now 
an easy prey. He took wiih bim about 400mea ; so that, 1,700

" I shall now proceed to Hong-Kong with all defpalch. I 
have the pleasure of mentioning tbe exceeding good conduct of 
the oBicers and men during these laborious and baiardoa 
operations. Their unanimity, willingnen, and eheerfulaew, 
have made it a most pleosint aervico, and no plunder, rspiDe, 
or misconduct baa larniabed tlieir honour. M^r-Gen. Wong, 
the mandarin, proved himself a gallant, active, and efficient 
ally, and 1 trnst his own goTOmment may reward him for bil 
good services. To have Commander Wilkox with me is, I 
feel, to have success. As a friend and an ofiioer be is unequalled, 
and his ship is in such good order, that I believe there n 
nothing be could not do. His judgment aad gallantry are OH 
an equal footing. Mr, Nibletl, of the Phligethan, has handled 
his ship ill a bold and dctennined manner, and has given me 
every assistance. As I was frequently obliged to be in tbe 
steamers, the command of this sloop has devolved upon Lieut- 
J. H. Bridges, senior lieutenant ; and he conducted her In 
action, on tbe SOtfi, with much ability. Lieut. Darnell, senior 
of tbe Fury, in command of her boats, has also rendered good 
service. Capt. Moore, of the BatHngi' Marines, has assisted 
me most materially in command of that body. Lieut. Hancock 
and Mr. Cbambers, acting mate, in command of the tespectira 
detachments of Haalingt' men, have given me much satisflKb 
tion; and Mr. Ratbbone, midshipman of the J^Wry, bus brought 
himself into notice for bis zeal. I have also to notice the namo 
of Mr. Algernon Woorlon, midsliipman, a most promising 
young officer, who has acted as my aide-da-camp, and been very 
useful on every occasion. I have tbe honour to enclose a list t^

GOVERNMENT NOTIFICATION. 

Hia Exc. H, M.'s Plenipotentiary is pleased to give publicity 
to the subjoined correspondence with the Imperial High Cora- 
aissioncr, on the tubject of the destruction of Sbap-'ngtsii's 
fleet by the successful operalions of the Columbiiu, -Fury, and 
PhltgtlhoH, aided b; a parly of officers and men fiom H. M.'s 
■bip Hastbigi. 

Victona, Hongkong, Uih Nov. 1849. 
From His Ext. Mr. Bonham, to Sii, Imperial Commissioner. 
Victoria, Hongkong, Bib Nov. 1849. 

Tn my despatch of the I5lh ulL, respecting the destruction of 
the Mttuflmcer by pirates, I repeated to your Excellency my 
determination to spare no vessels found to be engaged in piracy ; 
that I had written all this before, and not once only ; and tint 
youT Excellency would End there whs no dilference between my 
word and my deed. I have now the salisfection to inform your 
Excellency that two iteamers and a brig of H.M.'s service, 
which left tbis upon the 8th ult., relumed to Hongkong upon 
the 1st November, and have reported the complete annihilation 
of the fleet of Sbap .'ng-tsai. The circumstnnces are as fallows : — 

(Here follow! a detailed narrative of Ibe operations against 
Uie piratical fleet, as given in Commander Hay's official com- 
munication, published in a Government notification dated 1st 
November, from Ihe diplomatic department] 

From what has been done at Tin-pak, Ping.hol, and Fa fung, 
in the last Tew weeks, your Excellency will perceive that I am 
alocere in my desire to give security to the merchant by tbe 
punishment of these pirates ; and that every small force of our 
navy is perfectly equal to the task of e it erini nation. By their 
recent successes the outer waters will be almost entirely treed 
tmn these dangerous enemies ; but, as there are stilt loud and 
frequent complaints of the unsafeneas of the river, wilbin and 
without the Bogue, I again declare my n illingness to co-operate 
with your Excellency in the suppression of piracy there or 
elsewhere. 

Accept tbe HssurancL-s, &c., S. G. Bonujlh. 

From Sii, Imperial Commissioner, to his Exc. Mr. Bonham. 

sa. Imperial Commissioner, Govern or- General of tlie Two 
Kwang. &c., in reply; — 

I am in receipt of your despiitch of the S2nd of the 9th moon 
(6lh November), by which I am informed of tbe particulars of 
an attack made upon the pimtes in the water? of Cochin-Chins, 
bj the steam cruisers of your Excellent^'s nation, which, witli 
the co-openition of the officers of Cochm-China, who cut off 
their retreat, had been enabled to burn almost the entire pirate 
fleet; no more than six vessels of the third and fourib clsss 
havingmade their escape. This will indeed gladden (he beans of 
all men. A]thoughShih-wu-tsz'(Shap-'ng-tsai) has for the time 
d«lByed (the blow oO die sword of punishment, now that be is 
aa » fish in Ihe bottom of the kettle, there will he, I imagine, no 
difficulty in apprebending liim. 

• off Ibc cdut of Chluue Cochla China. 



With reference to what your letter farther saya, upon the 
insecurity of tbe river within and without Ihe Bogue, a search- 
ing inquiry has shown, that the fishermen and boat populalioo of 
the locality in question, when there is no great quantity at Gah 
to he taken, seiie llie opportunity to thieve and to cob. It can 
hardly be said that tbis is never the ease; but tbey ecrlamly do 
not land their craft together in Beets. Besides, there ia no 

Earallel between tbe river within the Bogue, which b cloae sit - 
and, and the sea-board of a foreign nation iike Cochin-Chink. 
Tlie admiral ia stationed on tbe spot: and, as bis cruisera an 
not few, and quite equal to the task of pursuit and colore, it i> 
not worth while to impose labour so severe apon tbe naval 
force of your Excellency's nation. 

Adverting to tlie English merchant -fblka, who snSered from > 
storm off the P£ng-ha (Pescadores), the compassionate Mteii- 
tion shown (hem by the officers and gentry of these islands waa 
no more than (what it required by) &e common law, where mny 
two lutions sre amicably blent together. Tbe Cbineae and 
foreigner are of one family; if either chance to be in extremity, 
it is tbe natural duty of tiie other to protect and auecour bim. 
Why then he at the pains of returning such abundance of 
thanks?* 

I therefore leply ; availing myielf of the opportunity to wiali 
tiiat comfort may increase to your Excellency, in year activity 
and your repose.

ever, are very different from tboae ascribed lo bim in Ihe later 
mytbology of India; next li Agni, the god of fire. The aun it 
also much worabipped ; but not the moon, and scarcely the pla- 
nela. The Vtdai, however, exbibltcleartracea of another type 
of religion, the olTapring, not of a timple contemplation of 
nature, but of reflection. Tbua the god Bribaapali (erroneoualy 
identified by tbe later Brahnuna wUU the planet Jupitei) ii the 
persooificalion, not, like the elder goda, of aome outward oh-

perly ao called ; they never claaai^ or deSne the objeeta of wor-

often greatly miaunderaiood the old religion. Of Ihoae Pan- 
Aeiatic view* of God which have ruled ao widely and ao long in 
India, we find indicationa only in a very few of the lateat hyoina 
of the Vedai. Of the Avataiaai or incamationa of Vislinu, there

Tbe Calcutta Iteriem for September hat an article upon tbe 
anbject of " Canala of Iirigslion in ihe North- West Provincea," 
detailing, from a maaa of vtlunbie canid literature, what the Bri' 
ti*h Goremnient baa done, and what it proposea to do, for the 
txtenaion of irrigation throughout ihote provmces. 

Preliminaiy to thia, however, the writer haa traced Che bit- 
toiy of the Mogul canala, which maintained a aystem of irriga. 
lion, more or leta efficient, for about four cenCuriea. 

liie GiaC Indian canal dates from the reign of Feroze Toghtak, 
whooe worka of utility, ornament, and bene vol en i^e, keep hia 
Bame in deterred remembrance. The position of the bead and 
■ODtcc of supply of Feroze'a canal are maClira of tome doiihC. 
The lealimony of hittoriana and uniform tradition would lead to 
tbe belief Chat the aupply waa drawn from the Jumna at <Ca 
deboucbement from (he Sewalik Hills ; but a document, hicherCo 
unknown, obtained From Lieut. S. A, Abbott from Abdul Salwad 
and Abdul Muttaklm, Fitzadaa of Dbalrat, in the diatrict of 
Khfthul, tends to prove that Feroie drew Lit canal from the 



Cbctang Nala, one of the drainage lines from the Sub-Hiiaalay^ 
weat of the Jumiw. Thia document ia a ninni^ of the great 
Akhar. dated in 1568, which atates that the Checang Naddi, by 
which Feroie Shah, 210 yeart before, Liooght water from the 
nalaa and drains in tbe vicinity of Sudhowra, at tbe foot of the 
hills, to Htnai and Uiaaar, had, in the courae of time, beeoma 
to choked, that, for the latt 100 year*, the watera had not 
flowed beyond Kbyihul, and (hence Co Hitaar the bed waa 
scarcely discemible ; that, in consequence, the emperor had 
itaued his frmm the preceding year (1507) that Cite watera of 
(be nalet and screami at tbe foot of the hills at Khirzabad (near 
the preaenc Delhi Canal bead), nbicb were collected in tbs 
Sombe river, and flowed into llie Jumna, be brought by a deep 
and wide canal into the Chetang Nuddi, and that the canal b« 
excavated deeper and wider Chan formerly, ao that all the water 
might be available at Hanai and Ilistar the ensuing year, 15G8. 
It would therefore appear that, whilst Feroze conttructed in 
1851 the first Indian canal, drawing an inCermiltent supply from 
the Chetang, it was to Akbar thaC tbe country weat of Uio 
Jumna whb indebied for a perennial atream drawn from that 

The noticea of the Western Jumna canala to (he time of 
Akbar are brief and imperfect. In (he reign of Sbah Jehan 
new works were undertaken and completed wiih cbaracteriatie 
magnificence. To afford an abundant supply of water Co bit 
new capital (rf'Shabjehanabad, lie projected the Delhi Canal, and 
in Ali Murdan Khan he foand an agent admirably qualified to 
execute his plana, Ali Murilan'a first line parCed from Feroie'i 
canal at Madlonds, and pursuing a aoutlierly course to Kerana, 
there entered an extensive natural hallow, the head of a great 
drainage line, and following that, in a highly embanked channel, 
at far aa Gohana, it turned thence to tbe toutb-eatt, by Intoula, 
and, nearly on the exiating line, entered Delhi. The embank- 
ments having given way, and tbe inefficiency of (bis line being 
demonatrated, en entirety new line was excavaled from Ralir to 
Intoula, Craveraing tbe anticlinal ridge, or natural water-shed of 
the eouncry, until It reached the vicinity of Bowana. Betweeit 
tliit police and the city of Delhi very low land intervenes, whicli 
rendered embsnkmenu and on aqueduct necessary. Clearing 
the low land, tbe canal wound along the base of (be AmvuUI 
Hilla, and, at a bvoursble point, boldly crossed this ridge by a 
channel cut through the solid rock. It then flowed through the 
city in a mssonry bed, throwing off On both sides innumerable 
minor atresma. The immenac number of old water-course* 
^ong the whole line of the Delhi Canal chow to how great an 
extent the agriculture of the country is benefited by iCa existence. 
For about a century and a quarter after ita original conslruclioit 
in 16£6, Ihe Delhi Canal continued cfBcient ; it became extinct ' 
in 175a The canal of Feroze had eeaaed to flow in Huiriana 
about 1707, and at Suffidan about 1740; ao that the Mogul 
canals became practically extinct nearly in Che middle of tho 
eighteenth century. 

In common with Che Delhi branch, tbe construction of the 
Eastern Jumna, or Doab, Canal, is ordinarily attributed to Ali 
Murdan Khan. let bead was esiabllsbed immediacely under tha 
Sub- Himalayan or Sewalik Hilla, and passing by the hunting- 
palace of Shah Jeban, it enlered the bed of the Raipur Nala, 
and carried thenca in an excavated rhannel acroas (he Intunvrala 
and Nowgong mountain-torrents, it was thrown into a low 
ravine, near the town of Behut, which it followed until It teiiched 
the bed of ibe Muskarra river, near (he villagelf Rulsia. En- 
tering there upon Che high land, the canal was carried past Saba, 
runpur, liampur, Jellalabad, Shamli, and other large towns, until 
it descended again into the valley of the Jumna, and fell into (he 
river nearly opposite Delhi. 

The Rev. Dr. Wilson haa published at Bombny a curious trea* 
tise on the aboriginal inhabttanta of IniiiH, in which he has enib 
msraled at least twenty savage races, biiC little known, reaident 
In or near Ihe island of Bombay. Amongst them an (be Wa- 
ralia, the Kttodis, the Nagukadeas, aod (he Kulie. 

The Waralia were first met with in Ihe year 1834^ They were 
found in great Qumbert rcund tbe Fortuguese settlement of 
Domaun, and in tbe solitary places adjoining. Their hair wic 
black and lank ; Iheir bodies were smeared with oil, and per- 
fectly naked ; their appearance was wild and aavage. They had 
no connection with the Brahmins, and knew nothing of the 
Hinilu religion. Their villages are never permanent, and they 
have no fixed abiding place or trace of a home : tbey move about 
the jungles as fancy, caprice, or necessity requires. When 
they need what they cannoc procure in Che woods, they cut a 
few bamboo), bring them for sate, and purchase with Ihe price 
all (bat ia deaired. Waghia, the Lonl of Tigera, is tbe only

ALLEN'S INDIAN MAIL, 

LONDON, 
TUESDAY, January 22, 1850. 

The Legislative Council of British India hcs of late been 
active beyond all precedetit. During a very ahOTt period of 
time, drafts of various Acts have been publisted (having 
passed a preliminary stage), which, if they acquire the force 
of laws, will prove of great importance to the well-govern- 
ment of that now vast empire. Some of these meaanreH 
have attracted a good deal of notice, and been subjected to 
criUcism in tbe Indian journals, which, pro Adc rice, fulfil 
the functions of an oppoaition party at home; indeed, it is 
avowedly with the view of testing the opinions of the public 
in Indie respecting these projects of tegialation that the 
drafte are officially published. 

One of the most remarkable ie that which proposes to 
abolish the exemption of British aubjeclB from the juriadic- 
tion of the East-India Company's Criminal Courts in tbe 
Mofuaail, being the complement of the Act of I83G (stig- 
matized as tbe " Black Act"), and the Acts of 1839 and 
1643, which made them subject to the Company's Civil 



Courts. The slight resistaDce now offered to this e: 
of the power of the Company's Courts, compared with the 
storm of opposition raised by the Act of ia36,^though the 
latter was far more inoiFcnsivc, since it was confined to civil 
process, and excluded the MoonsiAs' Courts from juri»> 
diction over Europeans, — is a convincing proof of the 
unre^^:onabIeneE9 of that opposition, which originated in A 
despicable party spirit, and a vindictive feeling towards a 
partieidar individual. The injustice, as well as invidious- 
nesa, of keeping up one set of Courts fas Europeana aad 
another for natives, is broad and obvious. If the Mofussil 
Courts arc not good enough for tbe former, they are too 
bad for the latter, and the most effectual mode of disco- 
vering and correcting their defects is, as Mr. Macanlaj 
remarked, to make both classes atnenable to Ihera. The 
abiiurd consequences to which the distinction has led may be 
seen from the following incident, which oecnrred at Meern^ 
and ia supposed to have oriijinatcd, or at least hastened, the 
present Act ; — 

" A youth WAS brauf'lit np before the Criminal Conrt oo a chaige 
of havir^; altered n bill from 4 to 40 Kb. Aftrr the prellmioary in- 
Teslizfllions had bci'n cornplcIi.il, It nat dlscaicred that be ma • 
British subject, and it bceanie aeceasary to traashr the eofiiiBfwa 
of the cn^e to the Supreme Cuait in CnlcBttn, and thii led tn the 
Eum.u'iulaf of the b:>uker at Allyghar nho caihed tbe draft, of tiM 
half.daicD iuditiduals tbroufth ivlioje hsodj it passed befuce it 
readied Mi-rrut, ut tbe deputy-colkctur aud his Iiead.eluk, and of 
scvcial olbcr pcreoas, to C.ilcutla, a thousaad miles distant, tu give 
tridcncc in this ningulficent forgery case." 

This aTicrr:i!j' will now era 5 c. All personn thron^oat 
the Company's territories (beyond the towns of Calcutta, 
Madias and Biinihny) will bi.- henceforth subject to tbema* 
gistrates and Criminal Courts of the Company, aud liable to 
punishment for any offence, accordinjj to the Kegulatjona 
and Acta in force ; save that no natural-bom sut^ect of her 
Majesty, born in Europe, can be punished capitally bjr any 
such Court or magistrate. 

The objections urged against the remoral of this exemp- 
tion rest euiirely upon the ground we have referred to, the 
inefiiciency of the Mofu8t^il Courts, — for tbe argument of 
a Madras journal, that it is " part of a systematic and in- 
sidious desi)^ for the virtual subveraion and final abolition 
of the functions of the Supremo Courts," scarcely deaerrea 
an answer. I'he syltem of criminal law in tbe intarietr ia 
alltjjed to be had ; the tnagistracy is, in some cases, 
intrusted to civilians of immature age ; the Judges 
are not well instructed in the great prindples of 
law, and pierjury and forgery are said to flourish in tbo 
Company's Courts. These are, however, reasons for im- 
proving and purifying the system, not for ezeiaptii^ one 
class and not the other from its operations. IMth regard 
to the last-mentioned point, however, the Criminal Courts 
labour under the saoie difficulty in respect to evidence, oral 
and documentary. " We could point oat an instancy** 
observes the Friend of India, " in which more than 5,000/. 
has been paid for evidence in tbe Supreme Court within the 
last four yeara." 

The journal Just named, of the 6tb of December, in an 
excellent paper, in which the whole subject is examined and 
discussed with great fouraeaa and force of argument, ob- 



"Tbe only qoestloB to ba wlTtd Is tint of jastic* and eqaitf.

Another Act propoeee to esUblUb trial by jury through- 
out Britiah India, wherebf ererj p«rw>D who, at the Ume ot 
hi* committal for trial hj a Hwioiw judge, ahall claim to 
be tried bj a jury, will be eatitled to that form ol trial. 
Tbe maiiBei in which jwies are to be provided and ap- 
pointed b as folloin : AQ perMna of repated intelligence 
and respectaitulitj, between theagei of twenty- five and fifty 
yean, are declared qoalified to serve on jariea, and, with 
certaia cxceplionB, are liable to lerre ob jnTyinen. When 
a jury trial ia to b« had, fire persona are to be cboaen hy 
lot from thoee who attend tbe seeaiona on tlieir aniinnona, 
and any deficiency in tbe required number ia to be supplied 
by the jodge d« drtmauioMtibut, or othenviae. Both pro- 
■ecBtor and priaoner may object to a juryman for cante, on 
the validity of which objection the judge is to decide. He 
18 lo appoint the foreman of the jury j be is to put such 
qveetieae to tkewitMeaee aa maybe eaggeated by the jury; 
lit the close of the trial, be ia to (am up and explain tbe 
«Tid<aioe to tbe jary, of whoM verdict (to be determined by 
dM ra^ority) he is to declare hta approval fir disapproval ; 
in tbe latter event, the judge is to refer the case to tbe 
Nizamut or Foajdaree AdawiuL 

It win be perceived that the echewe, which, we believe, 
lias been in practice in some parts of British India, com- 
iHDes the prindplea of our jury system with those of the 
Uindn pimchayet. Ita aimjriicity and furaeas, and it* ob- 
vioos anali^y to their own system, will probably recom- 
mead it to the people of India. 

A third Act, worthy of notice, trader the gnise of pro- 
claiming and extending the Uberal principle, that no man 
«hall be dafxived of ligbla or property by reason of any 
change in bis rdiffious opinions, throws a very necessary 
protectioa arotind converts to Christianity, and arms the 
Courta of law with pover to prevent tfaoae tyrannical as- 
■omptiwis of anthori^, on the part of tbe Hindu heads of 
•ects, whatby aevere civil disabilities are inflicted upon 
Okmb of thoT countrymen who, in reoonnciug their creed, 
violate the laws of caste. This, we apprehend, will, at 
leaat, be tbe practical effect of tbe law, and if so, it ie, per- 
b^M, the moat important of the three we have enumerated. 
It ^ipcBTs by the last accounts from Calcutta that the 
" orthodox " Hindus of that city so underatand the law, 
and have detennined to petition Parliament against it. 



Thi subject of emigration to onr colonies has acqaired an 
additional degree of interest, now that the benevolent project 
started by Mr. Sidney Herbert, and well supported by a 
band of nohle coadjutors, baa a fair prospect of realitaUon, 
namely, a fund for promoting tbe transfer of our distressed 
needlewomen from a state of abject penury, humiliating 
dependence, and incipient diseaae, at home, to health, free- 
dom, and comparative comfort abroad. The scheme, in ita 
conception, is a happy one; it combines tbe immediate and 
tAcctnal relief of these females, many of wbom are of repu- 
table families, with tbe public objects of diminishinK the 
glut of the home population, and making a large 



to tbe colonial communitiea of precisely that class of settlers 
they are moat in need of. The only danger lies in the mode 
of working out the scheme, which demands much care and 
caution, and a vigilant supervision, to counteract causea 
that would Qullify it altogether, and even generate greater 
evils than it cured. 

The care of framing what may be termed the machinery 
of the project was confided to a sub-committee, who have 
just made a report upon tbe subject, which is distributed 
under the following heada: "1. The proper aelection of 
emigrants; 2. Tbe most effectual mode of protecting the 
emigrants during their transit to tbe colonies; 3. The aid 
and protection to be insured to them on landing; and, 4. 
The cost of their outfit and passage." 

Under the first head, the aub-committee justly lay it 
down, as a concluaion drawn from experience and the beat 
evidence, that it ia of rita] importance to the success of tho 
undertaking that those persona only ahould be selected for 
emigration whose characters for morality and industrial 
habits will bear the strictest scrutiny. 

The following are the recommendations which the sub- 
committee offer under this head : — 

" 1. "nie eaadldates for emi^ntlOB ibonld oot meed tliirtjr-flva 

" 3. They should be entirely free from say meotsl ot bodily defeat 
likely to impair their aaefulnei) ai settlera. 

" 3. TtiFy Bbonld hm had the (nuU-pox or hare bfta Taednaled. 

" 4. Their eharseleri for industry and morality ahould be latlj- 
Iketory ; nod It ii desirable tbst they ihonld rsad and write. 

" E. They ahODld have been aecnstomed to oaiblDK and cooking, 
or hue had tome eiperience la domeitie serTice, as boniemalda oc 

It is jrropoKti, in order that the characters and babita of 
the candidates for emigration may undergo a still further 
teat, that a probationary-house shoidd be established, cap^ 
hie of accommodating about fifty females, wberdn they 
might reside for a abort period prior to their embarkation. 

Under the seoond head, which is an all-important one, 
the auh-committee conclude that the best description of 
protection which can be afforded to young females during 
their passage to tbe colonies will be on board tbe Govern* 
meat emigration ships, in which tbe strictest discipline is 
maintained, and where the emigrants are generally bene- 
fited by tbe surveillance of a clergyman or s schoolmaster; 
and where this mode of transit cannot be obtained, they ad^ 
vise that the females should be sent out in small parties oti 
board free emigrant ships, vrith a view of securing to them 
that protection which the presence of married couples and 
families, intereated in the maintenance of order and de- 
cency, would, to a certain degree, afford. 

The third object ia happily secured by the resolution of 
the Colonial Land and EmigratiDn Commissioners to place 
at the disposal of tbe suh-committee the machinery already 
established in otir colonies for securing to the new comers 
tbe same protection, aid, and guidance which tbey are ia 
the habit of affording to parties who emigrate under their 
own direction. 

" Oa reaching the eolonlei, the emigrsnts wlU be recclired b* 
Government ofGcen, who will be initruclcd to gl<e them nil the 
aaslitaoee aod adilce tbey may require, si to the rate of wagei, the 
places where enptoTmeut may be nioit nadiiy obtained, and other 
similar points. They will also be received In barracks, and rationed 
for a linilrd period, shoaid an) delay Inevitabiy oecnr In aecnrio^ 
employment ror then." 

The cost of outfit and passage will be provided, either 
wholly or in part, according to tbe means of the applicant 
by the Fund.

These recommendations o( the Bub-committee were ip- 
proved ani) adopted, and the donations having alrsady 
reached a considerable sum, the scheme may now be consi- 
dered to be in operation ; and we indulge a very sanguine 
hope that the plan, in its public as ivell as ila private effects, 
• — in infusing pure and nholeaome blood into the colonial 
societies, whilst redeeming the hel[ilea3 from misery, dis- 
ease, and perhaps vice,^^will prove an instrtiinent of exten- 
sive good 1 and those, whose benevolence docs not lack the 
means of exercise, cannot, in our opinion, employ those 
means to better purpose than by contributing thsir aid to 
the " Fund for Promoting Female EmigralioD." 

We find that Capt Da Costa, who had been engaged in a 
gambling transaclion with Iifajor Cooke, for which and its 
incidents the latter officer was dismissed the army, has been 
likewise brought before a court-martial, and being found 
guilty of " unoflicerlike conduct," in having played at cards 
with Major Cooke for large slakes and bets, in the course 
of which hs won from that officer R«. 26,000, " such con- 
duct being in direct disobedience of repeated General 
Orders prohibiiing gambling in the army," has been de- 
graded to the bottom of the liet of captains of hie regiment. 
Gambling is thus placed in the category of military oftences 
in the Indian Anny.

M1SCELLANE0U& 

IlDTA^ Asiatic Socthtt. — At a meeting of Ibl* society, on 
the IStb January, the Earl of Ellesmere, the president, in tho 
diair. Major Rawlinson read a paper of eitraordinary interest 
upon the Assyrian inscriptions at Nimrud, Koaynnjik (or 
Nineveh), and Kboreabad, which, it appears, contain a copious 
collection of historical data, anterior and lulwequent to the 
dace orSardannpalus, as well as genealogical lists of the kiiigi ot 
his dynsEly. Major Rawlinson read translations of some of 
these inscriptions, one of irhicli waa a minute chronicle, by the 
son and immediate aucceiaor of Sardanapalus, of the politicml ami 
military events of his reign, extending to thirty yeari, detailing 
his vaiioui expeditions, conquests, &c., year by year. Many of 
these erents synchronize wltti the historical records in the Bible 
— some of (he names are identical— and the narrative throws 
a strong light upon the history, antiquities, and religion of Baby^ 
Ionia, Anmtea. Prrsls, Tyre, Sidon, and Egypt- The inscrlptiona 
of different obeMtha mutually assist each other, and in one of 
them there la a reference to the colossal bull, and to the object 
which it was Intended to commemorate. Major RawUnaon 
expressed the flrmest confidence in Ihe truth of liis system of 
decipherment, and in the accuracy of bis renderings, which 
their interna] evidence jnattfies ; and, in reply lo an inquiry, be 
stated that the language waa decidedly of the family called 
Semitic, the pronouns, verbal allixes, and other grammatical pe- 
euliaririe*, being nearly the same aa in the Hebrew and Chaldee. 
The discoveries of Major Rawlinaon may be considered m ■ 
gigantic atep towards ihe recovery of tliG lost history, of an empire, 
eloaely connected with that of ihe Jews, and as affording an irre- 
fragable testimony to (he trulhfnineu of the Sacred Records. 
Major Rawlinson offered lo resume and eontinue bis revelations 
At future meetings of the Society, which Lord Ellesmere, in the 
name of Ihe Society, requested him lo do. At the close of the 
meeting be read a letter fiMm Mr. J.ayard, wTiich he had just 
received, announcing further discoveries by that gentleman, now 
occupied at Ihe acene of his former successful labonra. The 
meeting was very numerous; the Marquess of Lansdowne and 
many persona of rank were present- 

Thi lite Liiui. WacHoKH was bom at Chatham in the year 
1800. At (ivelve years of age he waa appointed a midshipman 
in the Royal Nuvy, and sixteen days before he hsd allained 
seventeen be passed in navigation for lieutenant, th« youngest 
midabipman that had ever done so. In 1B17 he mu paid off, 
and went third mate of a free.lrader lo Calcutta. Reluming 
home in 1819, he got appointed to the Bengnl Marine (pilot 
acrvice), where he served till 1834<, when he volunteered for the 
Arracen war, and received Che command of the East-India 
Company's cutter Mntehltat, and a division of gun-lHiats, in con- 
nection with that army and Soiilla. He was five times engnf>ed, 
and saw much service by land and sea, and was once wounded in 
the tight thigh. He returned to Calcutta in 1B27, having re- 
ceived the thank* of all the HUlhoritiea, tvith a constitution then 
undermined by the fever of Arracan; but from bia indomitable 
perseverance LieuL Waghom rallied to the great project he had 
secretly al heart, — namely, a steam communication between our 
eastern possessions and England, He communicated bia plan 
to the offlciala, including the then Chief Secretary to Ihe Bengal 
Government, Mr. C. Lushlngton, now M.P, for Westminster, 
through whom he brought home letters from Lord Combfrmere, 
then President !n Council (Eart Amherst, Governor- General, 
being on a tour in Upper India), for the East-India Company, 
in London, aa a Sc and proper person to open ateam navigation 
wJth India, via the Cape of Good Hope. On bis arrival in 
England, Lieut, ^^'agllo^n advocated this object in London, 
Liverpool. Mancbesler, Glasgow, Birmingham, lie, as he fiad 
previously done at Madras, the Mauritius, the Cape, and St. 
Helena. But the Posl-oSlce. at that time, waa opposed to 
ocean steam navigation ; and so were the Eaac-India Director*, 
except Mr. Loch. However, in Oct. 1889, Lieut Waghom was 
called on by Lord Ellenborough (President of the India Board) 
and Mr. Loch (Chairman of the Court of Directors) to go to 
India, through Egypt, with despatches for Sir J. Malcolm, Go. 
vemor of Bombay, and to report upon the procticabilily of the Red 
Sea navigation for the overland mule. On lhat trip he got to 
Aloiandria in twenty-six days ; and so rapidly was hia journey 
to Trieate accomplialied (nine days and a half through Ave king- 
doms), that an inquitr was then made by Ihe Foreign OAic* 
respecting it. Lieut. Wacom's orders were to join the E/iitr- 
prue, first steamer from England to India, at Suei, on the Glh 
of December, 1839. Owing to an accident ahe did not appear, 
and aa he had important Govemment despatches, Lieut. Wbb- 
hom bad no resource tjxtft lo return to England, or go on in 
an open boat doivn ihe Red Sea. He preferred Ihe latter as a 
matlerof duty, and aailed down Ihe centre of that sea wittiout

blished above them (in irhicb luiurie* are provided and stored 
for the passing tiarellers), and rendered that hitherto waaie (he

in 1841, he had estabUtbed Engliah carriages, vans, and horses. 
for ibe paasengers' conveyance across the Deiert (instead of 
camels), aod placed imall steamers from England on the Nile 
and the canal of Alexandria. The " Orerliuid IMaiii" to and

himself J and he summed up his labonn by carrying letters lo 
England &om Bombay in forty-seven days, in February. \SH,

SUMMARY AND REVIEW. 

Tm pcesent mail is hj do metm a barren one. The 
uteOigeiice ia not, indeed, marked by any feature of bigh 
po&ticil importance ; but the inddenti, foreign and domeatic, 
s« Bot wTtbont interext. 

Tba Rajab of Sikbim hat at length releaBed Dr. Campbell 
' nd l>r. Hooker, who had arrived at Daijeeling, Bccordiii)^ 
to the Calcntta papers, on tbe Uth ot December, though (he 
Bombay TiaK'cafGrros that the; had not reached that station 



np to the I7th. Of their actual liberation from coafioe- 
ment there it, however, no doubt. They received tbeir 
parting presents on the 7tb December, and were to coni- 
mence their relnm to Daijeeling on the 9th, by way of 
DiUing, which, strange to aay, ia the longest route. It ia 
difficult to account either for tbe determinaUon to release 
them, or for the selection of tbia eircuitous journey. The 
Rajah's wife had been uniformly kind to Dr. Campbell in 
hia captivity, and repeatedly sent bint refreshments. The 
reason alleged by the Rajah for the outrage was, it Is said, 
that Dr. Campbell had transgressed tbe boundary beltveen 
Sikbim and T&rtary, not that he had passed beyond the line 
of demarcation which separates our tertitoriea from those 
of Sikbim. Neither this plea, nor his tardy release of tbe 
two gentleniea, is likely to exempt the Rajah from punish- 
ment; the troops dMtincd for that object had reached Dar- 
jecling, and were moving upon Sikhim. 

The next incident, in the order of importance, is tbe 
result of the expedition against the intubordinate zemindars 
of the Eusofiye country, near Feshawur, who, it appear*, 
evincea repugnance, notunfrequently fell in various part* of 
theworld.tothe payment of rents and taxes. Abody of troops, 
nnmberiog about 2,500 men [as mentioned in a previous 
Summary), was despatched some time back into the Eusofzye 
country, and on the 11th December they ntarched, under 
the command of Colonel Bradshaw, 60tb Riflee, from the 
village of Kothnng (or Katlung), on the left bank of the 
Cabul river, to Sunghao (or Snggoo). a village situated in tbe 
gorge of a mountain range. A letter from the scene of ac- 
tion describes the pOHtion of the Tillage as formidable from 
its natural difficulties. It was seated in a nook formed by 
the hills (3,000 feet high) which bound the valley of 
Luncboor on tbe north, and a spur (500 feet high) project- 
ing therefrom, acroas which a atone wall or breaet-work, 
two feet high, bad been constructed, behind which, and on 
the spur, the rebels (about 2,000) took posL On our force ap- 
proaching them, two guns opened upon the men on the spur, 
whilst preparations were nuking for the attack. Tbe plan of 
attack was, that tbe height* on the right were to be crowned 
by the 200 RiSes, supported by the 1e& iving of the 3rd 
Bombay Native Infantry, under Captain Bingham, of the 
Rifles. The other heighta were to be occupied by Captain 
Lumsden's Guide Corps, and a company of the ist Punjab 
Infantry, under Captain Coke ; whilst Ute 300 men of the 
61at Queen's and the right wing of tbe 3rd B 
Infantry, supported by Fordyce'a troop o" 
Artillery, attacked the village. Instead, howev^ 
the Guides an hour to go round to the leftft 
allowed more than ten minutes; and tb^

AIXEITS INDIAM MAIU 



'fAag Srd N.l. tMtead of $aiag M (tw vilUffe, in wfaidi 
there were not above a hundred men, remained under cover 
in front of it. The ascent waa accompliBhed with great 
difficulty, the enemy throwing dawn largeitoBes, wlh bUi 
precision, from the heights. After a deeperate atruggle, of 
fire hours' duration, the enemy were driren by the troop* 
fbming the centre of atMck, namely, the detcchroeat of th« 
61et, ably auppoTted by (he 3rd Bombay Native Infantry, 
along a narroir, precipitoui, covered path on the heights 
behind the village, along which tb«y cn«fed, and wb«a it 
•mm inpossiUa to £ril«w them, %a the mwiWain, 3,000 fiaet 
high. The village wae eackad and biuiied. Ow loe* wh 
five killed and tiventy-Bix hadly wounded, including Captiun 
"Bingham, dangerously hurt hy a itone, TTie loss Of the 
' enemy is supposed to have been 100, and the puniAmtnt 
produced its proper effect ; for, next day, the hekd man 
of the village came In and sued for pardon, promiaiDg to 
pay the arreara of reveime, and to be more pnnctnd and 
belter beliBved in fotore. 

On the I3(h, die force moved to attack other refractory 
TillageH, within two mllea of Sunghao, the inhahilanta of 
which, having received succour from the Zwntteee, 
mtistered, it is said, 10,000 men. These villages, called 
' Pulleewal, Zorcmndee, and Heerfchaner, were situated on 
a narrow plain, in the north-west comer of the Ltmcfaoor 
valley, where the hills, which form the north and west 
boundaries of that valley, termioate abruptly, thna formmg 
the pass leading into Zwatt. The ground m front of the 
villages is intersected by walerconrses and rsvinea, while on 
' tEhe left ia an iaokted hill, 1,500 feet high. The enemy 
took advantage of the natural strength of the position, and 
bad fortified the village of Zommndee (the centre one), and 
the graveyards and topes of trees surroundiag It. 

On the 14th, a party of the 6lst Foot, with Coke's and 
Lttmsden's men, attacked the insulated hill and the 
northern range ; the 60th Rifles, and the 3td Bombay 
I^Btive Infantry, driving the enemy out of the hilli, and 
the artillery covermg all the movements. The rebels made 
a stout resietance, and had vast numbers killed. Our loss 
was trifling. Their villages were burned and razed. A 
general submission was expected to be the result of this last 
sAir. 

A third incident is a projected expeditioD against a tribe 
. called Kooks er Kookies, inhabiting the upper range of 
' hills on our north-eastern frontier, beyond Sylhet, and 
who have been ravaging the plains in the Tipperah country. 
These people, it appears, sacriflce human victims at the 
funerals of their chiefs, cutting, off' as many heads as the 
deceaaed chief numbered years, and their descent, it is 
supposed, WBB for the purpose of collecting a sufficient 
number of vicdms for such a ceremony. Colonel Lester, 
commanding the Sylhet Light Infantry, had been ordered 
out Bgsunst these plunderers and murderers. 

At Lahore ibe ceremony of the investiture of Sir Walter 
Gilbert and Sir Henry Elliot, which had been so long 
looked for, took place on the 5th December. A report 
of its inddenta is given in a subsequent column. TheGo- 
• Twnor-Gaae»l had held a durbar, when Shaik £mam-ood- 
deen was raiaed to the rank of Nuwab, and the Aloowala 
chief, Nihal Sing, received the title of Rajah. That capital, 
ae well as the rest of the Punjab, appears tr«nquil. 

The Governor-General left Lahore on the eth Deeem- 
ber fot Mooltan, and was expected at Bombay about the 



middle of January, where prepaixti«u bad been mde br 
his reception. An address had been resolved upon, at a 
meeting of inhabitants, European and native, expressive of 
the gratifieation «4urii his lordship's presence would alFard 
U> all classes of the community, " and of th^r confident »• 
surance that the pereonal knowledge which his lordship wiQ 
acquire of the lesourees and capabilities of tbia part oi the 
territories ander his government, will enable him to »p- 
preeiate their value, and tend to measures calculated to pTO- 
note the geseral interests of tba whole of British India." 

ThitrirMiis«iari»n-^i'' iiir-^-'-'- '"■'-'- 

ot ths last acoovnta. 

For some time past, obscure intimations have been tbrovn 
out in many of the Indian journals respecting certain occnr- 
rencea at Indore, and the conduct of the British res* 
dent at thM court, eafwdally with reference to the M«h 
Srinb. ft now appears that chargas were octaally ^k^ 
fared ^(BiMt Mr. Hamilton; that his aecnser ja 
a native of high rank, Bago}ee B»o Psnaiab, and 
that ibt Governor- GeriOTal, vpon an amtiogniaa ofitbe 
charges, has pronoanced (bem frivohms, entirely taput^ag 
the Resident, and declaring that he bad done notUng- to 
deprive him of the confidence of GovenunsnL His aecuMT, 
moreover, has been dismissed from Us poution in the 
Regency, as a person from whom the Resident had just 
grounds for witbdrairii^ his ivinjjw><-». ^aratLbalaaa, iba 
Bombay papera do not appear to be altogeAer satisfied 
with this result. The Ttleffropk says :— 

"Wcirbnwd to duroM whtcb have Wen KUt la br BMtfaer psrtTi 
wkow high ehamdar will eaamBod retptetnd sKentloa, and to wltoee 
BppHcatiDo no np\j had hcoa rccdwd at the diteaf the lutkdtlcn

The Bombay Timet, however, Mfers to a letter from 
Helwa, "the author of which is beyond all suspicion of 
distorting facts," in which the alleged serious cbaiips 
i^ahist Mr. HamHton " astnme a very different aspect fron 
what one would have inferred from the notices in tbe 
columns of our Calcutta conteuiponuies ;" adding : — " If 
mattnrs really are as staled by the writer of tb* letter— «id it 
cornea from a quarter where the tnie position of tfaingB 
■mat he known, — the dafgmatory insinuations whkdi hoe 
lately appeared in some of the pubUc prints will niMt wflfc 
the reprobation they deserve." 

At Calentta, the hoatiltty to the " Hack Act " appeun to- 
be acquiring intensity, as well as an organization, and the 
other presidencies are partaking of the contagion of ran- 
conr. " He agitatwn egunst the propMcd legislative acts 
for rabjecting Europeans to the crimind jiHisdiotion of Ao 
Company's Courts, and for protecting the Company's judi- 
cial officers from the legal conseqneneet of their own re^- 
lessness or ignorance, is lapidly acquiring strength and 
energy," observes the Hurkani. The EHgluhmm aays, 
" We have already meotioned the gsneral faeUng of alarm 
and disgust with which the British inhabitanta of Bengal 
havB received the propoaal to malce them subject to the cri- 
minal jurisdiction of the uorefwnied and incompetant 
Courta of the East-India Company." A reqniution to the 
Sheriff of Calcutta for a public n i>»tiTi g to petition against 
the proposed Acts, ncnved more than four hundred aigna- 
tures in a few boura. The draft of a memoiial to the Go- 
venunent, prepared by Mr, Dicken*, has been published.

xavenuea of India when it may beat oiice terminated. by borniv- 
ing ei^ht millions and a half aterlbg ai three per cent and dis-

draiu on our revenues must be left to the wisdom ef Par^

sion least intetroption to public biuLnesa ; hut it Is the tint and 
most momentons question comiecied witli our Indian Goveni-

a lower rate of inlerest, on condition of being allowed to retain 
their present connection with East-India patronage.

ViLL,^eE Scuoou IN N.W. FaBOXScv.— We rqince to 
learn, as we do from a correap<mdeiit who is likely to be wdU 
informed, that the Court of Directors hai made a grant of more 
than a half a lakh per annum tor village schools in the N. W, 
Presidency. By a jiulicious application of tills sum, in ectabliabi 
ing and aiding in the aupport ofsttboola, very much may be dooa 
towards supplying ever; laife vdlage with the means of sff(»rd~ 
ing a rudimentary education to tlte youth of tbe naigbbourbood. 
We shall watcb the progress and nsuU of the experiment wUb 
much interest, in the hope that its succoaa may ancourage out 
nilera to repeat it on a larger aoale in the Lower Proviacea.— 

Tub Joac Act. — The plan begins at tbe wrong end. Insteact 
of raising the CouMs to alevel witli tbe intelligence of the age, 
and rendering them fit tribunals for the trial of free men. tta^ 
are to he left in all their defurmity and corruption, and the pri- 
vileges of British-bom subjects pared down to the same leveL 
The argument is, that all tbe l^^ilonts of a country should 
have equal rights. Granted; hut tbat is no reason tor subject- 
ing them to equal wrongs. It one, and that a very small clasa, 
has biUierto been exempt from tbe defective and oonupt admi. 
nittratiou ot criminal justice, tlie evils of the syBtem will not 
be lessened by including them in tbe calamity which bai befallea 
the native population. The attempt ia monstrous, and cannot 
succeed if there is a spark of Britiali spirit left iu this country.

rally to be a closed court; no one allowed to tnter biit ancb

Tlie court may eitbar conaiuniote to him what has been «ai^

what it deama best suited to obtain information on which higliK

4001 b7 tbe proprietors. If, tben, the Court oT PrDprieton were 
tp be made ■ pair; to everj queidoD tbit cmiae before tlie Court 
tf Director!, where would be the us* of ui executive bod;? If 
on til ocoHOPl there !■ to be a mutual delibcnlion and agree- 
jgent betveen the two Courti, It ia just tmcamoant to tbe de- 
atroccion of (he executive power of tbe Court ot Directors. It 
b, I cOTifecs, ■ very oice point. On tbe other hand, I feel the 
buperative importance of a dem oust ration being made on the 
part of the Court of Proprietors whenever it Js necessary. I 
feel it possible that it may be sometimes desirable that the Court 
•f Directors should ascertsio what are the ^neral sentiments of 
ftie proprietors on certain questions, withoac, however, commit- 
ting themselves thereby, or of allowing the proprietors to share 
iritb them in ilieir executlTC capacity. ^"1 ■uch occasions of 
CDnnlting, u it were, with the proprietors, ought to be the ei- 
Mptloa, and not the Tule< 

Mr. Smjiaat Guelsi. — I must enter id}| protest against tbe 
ilHrrniri ilrrr-r which yoi^ Sir, bare laid down. You hare 
M«B >^n jrwiiaeir to lajr doirai a gsneul rule, which, if cor- 
aaet, woald make it tbe gaeatsat bice in baring summoned »s 
kare today. I, aa a proprietor, will aot allow such a doctrine 
to be Mliranead in this room wttboat entering my protest afaiiut 
ik We have elected you as our encutive ; but itia ourboundeo 
daty dK to give up any authori^ we bsve delegated to yon. 
Tm we bound to consult us on certain ocouiona. Tbere ate 
AStaaion* when you ought to come, and are bound to come, 
Jft HI ; but, as I have mid before, we are oot treated with pn- 
par reject by you. When yon oome to ask br our votea, yon 
CPBC in a msaner which is unbeooming of men ( and when you 
gft, our ratal, you tieat iw in the way we deserre to be treated 
for having given you our votea. (Laogbtec.) 

ifr. Ltiom. — The Chairman bas decided this question between 
ikinulfand Mr. Sullinn; bW it is right tbat the countty should 
.iave an oppartuiiicy of judging of die natter, as well as those 
teside this Court. I hope the hon. geatlensan will not abandon 
4ke motion, but state his reasons for bringing it forward. 

Tbe doirataa. — The hon. proprietor is completely under a 
'Miatake ; instead of abandoning [he motion, the hon. gentleman 
is enly adjourning it 

Jfr. Lenia.—Ht abandona it prv ttmaarc 

itfr. iSiiJIiDim. — or course, Idonot abandooinynMtiotk Yon 
share conceded it. But what has lallan Irom the Chairman 
•Migea BM to call the attention of tbe Court to what has been 
.tte atiaoiatous practice of tbe Cowt in years past. In IBOS, a 
serious conflict occurred between the Court of Directors and the 
.Board of Control upon this question, vii. whether the trade 
■hould be thrown open. After a correspondence, which lasted 
two years, the secretary called the proprietors togetlier, and tbe 
TUncton having volunieered papers, asked for a vote, and they 
Rceired a unanimoua *Dle in their favour. In 1806, a dispute 
anise between the two Boaids upon this question, viz. as to (be 
Merits of Lord Weilesley's govemmenti and, after a great deal 
-Ul diacnasion between the two Boards, papers were laid before 
the Court of Proprieturs, and tbe vote not being unanimous, the 
Directors sulimilted the question to ballot, when tbey received 
abnost a unanimous vote. In 1811, another question arose be- 
between the two Boards ; and I will read a nieecb made by one 
fit your predeccaiors, to sbow what was Uie view he enter. 
tained upon the question now under discusaion. The report 
appeurs in the flrst volume ot tbe Ajialic Jvunuil, and tbat por- 
tion of the debute in which it occurs ia headed " Mr. Sherson 
and Mr Cooke " [Read theapeech of the G^airnan, in pageSl 
of vol. 1.] Here, then, a question was submitted to the Court 
of Proprietora when it was lubjudiet. Upon another very long 
Igilaied question, when a manaania was moved (or, the Clialr. 
man said — [Head the speeches of the Chairman, as reported in 
, the Aiiatic Journal, vol, I, pp. 381, 387, and 389.] Then there 
ii the opinion of Mr. Bosanquet.— a great authority before the 
Court in thosedsya. He said (p. 400) "tbat, upon so important a 
subject as this, it wan absolutely impossible tbat the Court of 
Directors could be silent. It was their bounden duty to lay the 
. papera before the Court of Proprietors. " Similar to this was the 
esse of Messrs. Palmer and Co., which occurred in 1633, when 
a wmdaiBiti was moved for. 

The CAaiVmaa.— Allow me to observe, that before the mait- 
doniiu wa« issued, all discussion between the Court of Directors 
and ihe Board of Control must bare terminated. 

Mr.Sui&Bim. — T have already shown that in more than one 
case it bus been the prsctice of the Court of Directors to ask for 
tbe vote of the proprietors where the diacussions have not termi- 
nated- Then, upun the subject of the appointment and removal 
of Lord lieyleibury, us Governor-general of India, Mr. Mill 
.baving moved iliat papers belaid before tbe Court of Proprietors, 
how did be begin his speech ? " The principle upon which be 
moved for those papers," &c. [Read from .ksioftc Joamn^ vol. 



xvfiL, N.&, pp. 57 and as.] §n said Mr. Aatelltbe same ^k 
He aaM, " If ladia utallr," &e. [Rend -fnw p. «a.J Ifc. 
Clark may be riicht in what he has said about the inexpedienqr 
of the Court of Proprietors being called upon on all ocesuona to 
eipreas tbeir opinion on the eondaet -of tbe Cenit vf Diieeteaa^ 
but then were, aahahail jasily nlaiinsj. iiiMiiliiiMl eaaea.-«iid 
tbia is one of them. Tbe Court of Directors are now i^ioot la 
make a flnal remonstrance to tbe Board of Control, and tb^ 
ought before this to bare called upon tbe Conrt of PrepcJeMnta 
bare given tbeai tiieir auyport. If tber had done tt, so eaa 
could fora moment doubt that this Court would have aupportod 
them by a unanimoas vote in tbe resolution whicb tbej bad coaie 
to in so good a cause, that caMsae being • 4nt iliiliiiiaiaaliaa 4a 
rsristagaaesoutrageand to «|Jiold tbe public 6utb. I%atwad4 
have aroused tbe Board of Contml to a sense of the miachieaow 
measure they were now about to enbree upon the Djnaeton ; 
and such a Tcsolation migU pass, if neaeasary, by a petMao M 
Parliament. That ia tbe ooMtkulianal eoMiM arbieb we oofit 
to take, and I say ilupon tbe highest authority, upon tfaeautbo- 
rity ofnolcBsaman tbanMr.Fox— aol wbenbe waa tittlagon 
the opposition benches, but when he occupied the bigbeet plane 
on the ministerial seat. Mr. Foi said, "llieonly remedy tbey 
(tbe DiiaeMrB) faul, wbeo tlwyfciBd *at the Boanl a( Con- 
trol inaiated upan ascasuree i^ieh to thoa offaasad «a ba of tt*

IbeHoaas^ Last aesstna a natiM was Bade fora ietlKaf the 
Secret Committee, which co«M pmperly beeonsidered «vly at-* 
letter of the Board of ConlraL" So tbat 1 atiil naiiKaiifc 
though most cordially concurring in the oheervation of Mr. 
Clark, that it would be mischievous in tbe extreme if this Court 
should be csHed together on every public qnesdon, tbat in sadi 
a case as the present it behoves the Court of Directors to meet 
Ihe Board of Control with the strongest powers, and that that 
can only be done by Aeir being tttppeited by the anaoimous 
vote of the Court of Proprietors. 

Mr. 8etjl.Stadi.~l wish to bare it definitely evpMned when, 
bow, and to what extent we hare delegated to the Dtraeton Ae 
rateentiva powers. Wbetber it rents vpon )>raolice — upon 
allied right— or upon what fronad, and to wbM emant ^oea It 
go, that we caanet question tbe opention nf their power *t 
we ba*e no place -to interpooe an opiatoii before any M ca aar e ia 
adopted by tfaem 7 Or do they nwati to nay that tbey are in tlw 
ntimtion of an arbitrary goveminent — of an irilgarebical gorenb 
ment — in which no voice can be givea — on opinion asked — no 
part taken in any matter In wbieh tbey-aie teact? 

Tbe Chairmim.—l can onlyaay, in answerto tbe ben. praprto* 
tor, tbat the Act by which we hold all onr tight and priailefeaia 
the Charter of the East- India Company, in which are laid down, 
by a very strict law, all tbe power* we paasesa, and [ have only 
to refer the hon. proprietor to that CbnrleT, whicb wHI tell him 
how the Court of Proprietors and Court of Directert ean alone 
condnet the affairs of the East- India Otnapany. 

Mr. P. Oordon. — Then ss I understand you, onr oniy con- 
trol irrer the Court of Direetors la tbat which has been atrirtly 
preserved tons by the Charter, ra., by a sinp^ vote, by whi^ 
(bis Court may dismiss tbe whele Court of Directors at onee, 
and that Hie Charter -doe* not dieir as to Intetlere wMyon ha 
any otber ahepe 1 

Mr. SuUvam. — I beg to observe tbat yon, Mr. Cfaalman, are 
begging a very great qneation, tbe moeseiM yon Bay that yon wHl 
lay the papers before us. Is it upon ntytnodon tbnt you have 
consented to do tbisT At flrst yon legated it. Do yon BOW 
tell me tbat you intend voluntarily to lay Ihem hefcre ns7 

Mr. Latin. — I would ask, is h to be teken as a ftvonr that 
tbeae pspera are to be produced? TTiis motion ia not made bf 
Mr.Sulltvsnalone— norlslt to be decided by theChairman alone. 
There is a large number of proprietors besides Mr. Sullivan inte- 
rested in tbe question, and some of them may oppose their pro- 
duction ; the Chairman, therefore, has no right whatever to say 
that tbey shall be produced. 

Major- OtHtral Brigg>.~-1 beg leave to second the motion of 
Mr. Sullivan. 

The motion was tben pot, "That the papers be produce^ 
and (bat (be next Quarterly General Court be made special for 
tbe purpose of taking ibem into consideration," which waa 
mrecd to. 

Tbe Court then adjonmed. 



A grand experiment is now in progress in Ceylon, which may 
ultimately affect the destiny of all India, namely, an endeavour to

SUMMARY AND REVIEW. 



Dn. Ctunpbell and Hooker haH arrived lafelj at Dar- 
jtclmg on the 23rd December. Tfaef dinrow tuj act on 



their part which could have justified their Bcizure, which, it 
appears, was ae wanton and uoproToked, as it wa« cmel 
and cowardly, . "^^ipt^ptioosof 9ur Govenwient with re-

ble that ioinelhing willbe done to'sallgfy tbe ends of 
joaticc. '" '...■- 

The force under Colooel Bradahaw, having thorouglily 
chaatised the EtMfiyoTtouMnts, had rrtwrned to Pesha- 
wur. Sonia Ennber accouotf of the operations against their 
villages are published in tbe Bombay papers, but diej- add 
nothing material to the preti^ns reports, except the follow- 
ing particulars of the confession of one of the prisoners, 
who, BCcordittg toB'lcttcr dated "Camp, near PulLl, i6th 
December," whiijb appears in the Bombay Timej, had been 
hrouflht in the previou* day, taken before Cotonel Law- 
rence, and subjected to the following ordeal : — 

" First he was bcooibt Bp-wHh« rope ronnd big neck, *htn tbe

eUeft, all of which were written down in Colooel Lawreoce'e filac* 
BobIi, after whieh the prlaonsr wu led oat of camp, and tuUL to 
depart." 

A misunderstanding is said to have taken place between 
tbe British Government and Ali Moorad, the ruler of 
Kjrrpore, the exact nature of which is not, however, 

Tbe territories of the Nizam cantians in tbe same dis- 
oigaBited state.. "Our last report from Hydrabad," says the 
EnfHthnwm, " atalM, that the only novelty in affurs l|iare 
ia, that depeodeiwe od the Government for the performance 
of ita engagsmeots haa ceased, and that nothing but the in- 
ternwdiation of other parties, trusted on account of their 
character or influence, brings the Oovemment a day of 
grace and relief fr^ai immediate tuniiilt, insurrection, and 
the disorders of' licen^uanets and disoi^nizaiion," It 
haa been sarniieed that the Governor- General, after leaving 
Bombay, may possibly visit tbe Nizam's capital, tritb the 
intention of seeing for himself what can be effected in the 
B-ay of reform.

ALLEN'S INDIAN MAlll 



Bhn Mdiar^ Singh, the celebrated SikhGooroo, bw at 
IcDgih l)een captured, and Fonei)|;ned to safe custody id the 
Julluudur gaol. The capture of this maD, who ia elated to 
have ezercieed, by reason partly of bia " sanctity," and 
partly of hie talents, almost unbounded inflaence over (ha 
Sikh nation, must be lexarded as a most fortunate occur> 
rence. He was taken by a party of irregular horse, acting 
under the direction of Mr. Vansittart, of the dvll service. 
The Delhi Gazette gives the following account of the 
afiWr:— 

" it noald (ipp«u thtt OD the BfterDODa at ths SSth Dectmbti, 

_^T.. ._. . L i_..i_._ "-jininMinr tfc^t Ite OoonJD WM known

opUliDg him if do lime wen loit, the iatimatioD beiDS Ktao ^ted 
that It would br cTcnsarr to ilde faaid, an rourteealtoiB mnat be 
doiu in an hour and a bilf. Mr. Vamittart loat no Ivnc in;f[rttiiig 
together some tweat; of SkicDCr's horK, and set off Immediatelf in 
the diicctioa wiiieh the guide paiated out, and on arriving at a thkk 
" " !d Ihat tbef had arrived at the ipnt

D oF the party (nnly ten. we arc told, urived viUb Mr. 
vsnnttad), nnd the ntherg kept goatd nver the eneloeore. Tbe 
maldrr of Skinner'e faoiec was tbe flnt to enter the encloinre, and 
the othen followlag, tlu Gooron, with twenty followert, Vn cap- 
tured : the; were generally uosnned, or there would do doubt hove 
been a contested itmgglc. As it was, we hear (hat one man itmck 
at Mr. Tan aittart with a smaU aie, but a pistol, ball fron tlu genlk- 
man diiabled the Sikh from doioe faither mbchitf." 

The ei-Maboraja, DuUeep Singh, was removvd from 
Lahore on tlie 2lst December, to iiis fntiue rendence at 
Futteligurh. The Siich Sirdars who were arreated eome 
Utile time ago have been sent across tlie Siitlej, and will be 
detained for the present at Alignrfa. Tbe walls of l^hore 
■re to be immediately levelled to the ground, and as 
this city haa been found most tmsnitable as a station 
for troops, a new cantMunent will be formed at Uaean 
Meer. 

The Governor-General, whoae healdi, itaj^ieara, is almost 
entirely restored, arrived at Mooltan on the 31at 
December, where he end the Marchioness experienced the 
most cardial reception. At a levee the Marquess, it is stated, 
was much struck with the yoothfiil appeuanee of tbe 
Bombay native officers (not promoted by seniority), com- 
pared with the old Bengalees. A dinner, an evening party, 
and B durbar, at which the Nawab of Bhawulpore was pre- 
sent, followed on successivB days. On the 2nd January 
llis lordship took a trip to Dbera Gfaatee Khan. He was 
to leave Ktirrachee on the l6ih January, and was ex- 
pected at Bombay on the SOth. His stay there would not 
exceed three days ; be would return thence to Calcutta and 
Simla. The Guicowar had determined to visit Bombay in 
order to be presented to the Governor-General, and five 
Bteam-hoats had been despatched to his Highness'e capital 
to bring down his elephants imd atteudanta, amounting to 
several thouaands : a residence had been provided for him 
at Malabar Point. His viaitwaa not to be altogether one of 
courleay and compliment. He intended to propose to the 
Governor-General that the British Government should 
aSbrd a guarantee of five per cent, on the portion of tbe 
Tankaria and Baroda Railway which passes tbr<nigh their 
dominions— about one-half, — he providing for that of the 
half which passes through his own; making up, besides, 
all deficienciea in the share-list. Tbe oflvr is coneidered a 
most liberal one. 

'Vhe Commander-in-Cliief still atlracta attention by his 
proceedings, which contrast strangely with the gravity of 



Aose of his prefleceaaors. In reviewkig the troops ^ur^ 
tered at Lahore, he fulminated a general order against the 
■tale of their diacipline, in which he atatee that he never 
before, in the course of half a century of service, wituened 
such a scene, — and felt aesured, that in no other regiments 
of the army could such miaconduct have occurred ; winding 
up by saying, that troops in such a state of disdpline ai 
Boana of the r^tmeBia exhibited, wonld in tbe field prove 
dangerous to their frienda and contemptible to their ene- 
mies. Sir Charles left l^ore for Sealkote and Peahawnr 
on the 24th December. 

The agitation upon the subject of the " Bethme Blad 
Act " at Cdcutta atiH continued. He meeting referred to 
in -vw kwt SMOmary look place en tlie 29A De wni hp, 
at tbe Town-hall. Tbe greataM uBaoimity prevailed; "in 
fact," aaya the Enffiithtnan, "there was no one present who 
did not appear oonviaced that the Acts for svlqec^Dg 
Biitish-bom aulfject* to the criminal jurisdiction of the 
Company's ccnrls might justly be entitled Acts for bamsh- 
ing EnglishDUto from India." We agree with thia jouraalict, 
that " one good will probably arise out of this agitation. It 
will expose the inefficiency and corraption of the Company's 
jadicial system, and force a reform therdn." 

Tbe Madras papers are hare of local intelligence. " It 
has been found impossible," aaya the AtAeaamtt, " to screw 
the folks of this apathetic presidency up to a public demon- 
stration agmnst the proposed obnoxious legislative enact- 

The and-Bladt Act agitation ia, however, gaining 
strength at Bombay, where a memorial againal it baa been 
signed Iiy nearly all the legal, commercial, and trading 
cIdssm ; a oommitte*, composed of several of the most die- 
tiuguiahed members of the various occupations and pro- 
feeaione, has been formed, and several of the British nu- 
denl merchants have resolved to subscribe largely in aid of 
the fund raised at Calcutta to defray the expense of oppos- 
ing these Acts. The harbour has been the scene of 
another act of incendiarism. The ship Darlmoutk, belong- 
ing to Measra. Peiraingtoii, of Liverpool, was totally de- 
atrcTed in this manner, on the morning of tbe 7th January. 
The results of the census, taken in May laat, hare beM 
pabliahad, sod it appears that, in the little island of Bom- 
bay, compriaing in all twenty square miles of ground— four- 
fifths of which, at leaal, ia uuinliabitable swamp or rock — 
there are in all no fewer than 666,119 inhabitants, (rf whom

PRESENTATION OP PLATE TO SIR JOHN LITTLER. 

He third resohrtion adopted by a meeting of the retldenls of 
CilcBtta conrened by the Sherilf at the Town Hall, on Monday, 
the Srd of April, 1848, was " that ■ anhacription be set on foot 
t«r a aertio* of plate to be preaented to Sir John Littler." 

The splendid " Littler nstimonlat " scrired by tbe ship 
Mlinmxh, and iias displayed *t Messrs. Latley's for scTeral days ; 
it was on Thursday last delirered ta the gallent reteran by the 
oommittee appointed for that porpoee at the laeeling of April, 
1848. On presenting this ms^lficrnt service of pUte, Mr. 
Bwgty« OardoD, of As Cliil Serrloe, tbe President of the Con- 
nrfltea, sMrasaed Oaaeral Littler in tbe following terms :— 

" Sir John LitUer,— It mast be fresh in your recollection, tbit 
•ae* sfter yoor Brritd at thie prealdeney, to take your seat as a 
meuberof the Sopreme Council of India, a public meeting ot the 
ii^bitaats of Cilcntte was aaaembled to do ycu honour. In 
vtrtne of a resohitian paased at that meeting, there was preaented 
to yoD an address, expresiiiig the high tense entertained by the 
dMnsnottf of tbe ralae of joar niiHtsry serrices, and their heact- 
(Hlaatt ll sctiiw that those services had been noticed, and rewarded 
1^ year Sovereign and by the Court of Directors. In conse- 
qqence of another rciolation passed at the same meeting, it was 
proposed that a service of piste should he presented to you. 
^ that proposal you, with the frankness of a soldier, 
acceded, cordially accepting what oat cordially affersd. 
A subscription wai opened accordingly to all classes. 
When a eaflkient smoant had beea suhtcribed to ao- 
eompllsh the object In view, thia committee, anting gn behalf of 
the lubterihers at large, placed themselves in commanication with 
a gentteman of acknowledged taste, General Macleod, of the 
Bengal Engineer!, who was then residing in London. By bit 
kindness and zeal a terviee of plate was, with all practicable 
despatch, commiasioned, designed, manuractnrEd, and sent to this 
country. It ia now oor pleaiiog duty to present it to you. 

" Costlier lestimoniala than tUt, Sir John Littltr', more msg- 
oificent tributes of scknowledgment tor publio services, have 
often been bestowed. But, if the value of the gift conaitCa in the 
spirit in which it it given, I know no man who has greater reaaon 
to set a high price upon any bonoar that tnajt have been con- 
ferred DQ him, than you have for prizing this testimoaial. It did 
not originate in ilatterr; it was not a return for any p«r«antl 
faioura received from yoo, nor was it an offering mada in cupeula- 
tlon of futwe favours. It sprang frou tba spontaneona and die- 
ioteretled impnlae of a large body of men, who honeatif Ihoaght 
you deserved it, as a mark of tbeb- gratitude. Ammgal the sub- 
scribers aie very laauy of your brother oSeers, of the hnmhlest 
rank, who vied with eodi other in cootiibutlng aoeording to their 
slender toeaaa, that they might do honour to the man who, one of 
theauelves, ooaided by aBf political indMnce, and through his 
own nKrilB alone, had risen to Ibe higlisal sailitary posts, and 
wjho, in nwny enlieal aitaatkms, had nably upheld tbe hooowr ot 
the Bei^ army. 

"Youn is ml a aitare to rconin OMBOved by sympathy so 
ganersX and so unoere. Nail ta that peaee of mind wWeb you

LAW. 

iHSOLvaNT CoUBT, Dic. 8. 

Jn Rt John Btchnilk, and ctrlmt oOier htohtnt ShmluUmt 
of tie Union BmA.— T^is was an application tor proof of (he 
claim of Mr. W. D. H. Oehir.e, a judgment creditor of the 
Union Bank, for Co.'s Ita. S6,000, againat the aeparate wtate* 
of Mr. John Beckwith and certain other iniolrenli, who were 
abardiolcJen oF the Union Bank. A similar application waa 
made on behalf of Mr. Oehme, and fully ar^ed, in January latt, 
in llie matter of Hesara. Mackilllgin, Gilmore, and Robertaon, 
the application having been oppoe^ on behalf of certain partlea 
who claimed to be separate creditora of Colrille, Gilmore, and 
Co.i under a mortgage and a joint and wpante bond with sepa- 
rate eovenantf. The Couit lefused to admit proof of Mr. 
Oehme'a claim in competition with the aeparate creditor*, whoae 
demanda. it waa then luppoeed, would absorb the whole of tbe 
Mseta belonging to the separate estatea. 

Sir L. Ped, having taken lime to consider hia judgment in 
this case bIso, delivered a written one: — The question in this 
case is, ivhether a creditor of the Union Bank can prove and re- 
ctive a dividend from the aepaiaie estate of one of several insol- 
vents, traders, who was a abareholder in the Bank, tliere being 
■ surplus of such separate estate. 1 decided, that he must Brat 
resort to the Union Bank, who must be deemed solvent co- 
contractora. The propriety of this decision is now to be conai- 
dered. I leave entirely out of question the surplus, for that 
really carries, the question no further; for, as ttie Joint eitate 
will not pay the joint creditors in full, they are entitled to rank 
on the surplus of the separate estate; and it stiU cornea round 
to the question — whether the creditor, having a separate debtor 
to look to, caa receive a dividend in competition with those who 
hive only the insolvent estate to look to. The question, there- 
fare, reallj resolves itself into this — whether the rale in hank. 
npt law IS applicBble or not. This Court, in distributing the 
eatates of insolvent traders who may be made bankrupts also, 
baa long adopted the general rules under which the dlslribnlitui 



the Legialatore. The proviaion aa to joint creditors 
the joint and separate estate, which ii in the Act, is an adoption 
Ofarute of the law of bankruptcy at established by the Courts, 
and it is lo be inferred from the provisions which are to be found 
in the Act, — as to the same psrly being at once subject to the in- 
solvent law here and to tbe tankrupt law in England, and for the 
collection and diilrlbalion of his assets in that case, — tbM it WM 
not intended that the right to ■ dividend should nry. 

But even if it were originally a rule wrongly established, that 
tbe general rules of bankruptcy should be appbcable tolnaolreM 
traders andet tbia Act, it ii an error of loo long a preralene* for 
me to abandon it. There is, howerer, very good reason for the 
oHginal adoption by a Court of Bankruptcy of this particular 
role. Tbe Court says, " As yon have a solvent debtn, pursue 
your remedy Arit against him : resort to hica. We cannot woric 
ODt the equities of all parties, if you diminish an insolvent eitate 
by putting the claimants on it in your place, by giving them ■ re- 
sort 10 your debtors : for we have not tbe parties before os. If 
you obtain payment of your debt from the co-contracton, and 
Ibey pay more than their share, they may claim for his portion 
■gainst tbe insolvent." It ia, therefore, a practice wliicii lends 
to expose tbe insolvent's estate lea* to the expense tA litigatioti, 
and puts the creditors of the insolvent debtora upon the asser- 
tion of their remedies against them, instead of making the 
assignees the actora in an equity suit against the eo-cootraetora 
of the insolvent. 

The 37lb section (of the old Insolvent Act), in my opinion, 
does not touch Ibe question. That section gives a right of 
claim ; and it incidentally gives the right to a dividend, ibough 
there be more contractors than one, and ihe insolvent not the 
sole contractor : but it docs not say jointly liable, and solvent ; 
and it cannot be supposed that the Legislature, in introducing 
this section, which was to give a right of proof, under an Insot- 
Tent Act, lo one who, if he claimed not, would not be barred, 
as not included in tbe schedule, meant, by a side-wind, and 
without express reference to the subject, lo say. that tbougli 
those jointly liable were solvent, there ahonld be ito primary re- 
sort to them. 

Application refused. 



MISCELLANEOUS. 
Thi Mail from London, Not. 24, had not reaehel Calcutta. 
on the 7th of January. 

HuoB TnoauxT, tbe Rendent at Nepaul, It is said, intends 
proceeding home Immediately, and that his place will be sup- 
plied by Major Mackeson. 

Thi RisiDiHT AT Iiiooaa.— We have beard on undoubted 
■Dtbority, that Mr. Hamilton, the resident at Indore, has been 
fully and honourably acquitted of all tbecbarKss tfwt were brought 
■gainst him. The allegations have been proved utterly Bdse, 
and Ihe native official who was the flrsi to spread tlwm, has t>een 
declared unworthy and incapable of serving the Govemaent fur- 
ther. He will, consequently, be dismissed tbe sgeney.— Deffii 
Gazdit, Dtc es. 

Lahoki.— Letters from Lahore meotion that the head quarters- 
■nd camp waa eipected to leave about tbe 17th or TSth Decem- 
ber. The ^tb is expected to reach Lahore, Dee. 83, and the 
60th Native In&mtiy Ins been directed to halt to escort seme of 
the slate priaonera to Ihe provinces. Mooing is starving himself 
to death— snah is the report. Tbe Snd Europeans marched 
from Lahore on the 7ih December. 

Ha- HaDLST, the pilot, was disasiased the service bytbe 
Court of Inquiry on the charge oF asking for ■ gratuity, bat 
tbe deputy- governor has oomnuited his aentence to loss of 
twenty steps in rank. 

Tbi MissiHo BOAT of the burnt diip Catuiput, containiiv the 
captain, mate, and some of the crew, has arrived safely at False 
Point Light. Through the active exertions of the committee 
of the Sailors' Home and the liberality of the aMlcantile com- 
munity, upwards of Rs. 1,400 has been raised for the captain 
and crew, who lost their all by the destruction of that ship bj 
fire. 

Jure. — Tlie Tnaarance Companies of Calcatta hare issued, 
notice tliat they will not insure jute on board any veiael, naless^ 
it ia carried in covered packages. 

Lu ex HOW.— Letters Siam Luckiiow mention that Col. Slee- 
man, the resident at that court, is about to make atour tlirougb- 
oat the Oude dominiona, for the purpose of ascertaining the 
true aource of the evils that afflict that unhappy country. It it 
expected tliat a general reform will follow tlie tesideni's move- 
ments. and it ia said that the king's brourite (a court singer o< 
the name of Reiee, who at present rules tbe king's inelina- 
tiona,) ia now intrignuig fi prevent what mutt necessarily bring 
about Ibe loss of the greater part of his present enolaoMnts.— 
JVo/ksfiKle, Sec. i7. 

Civil Siavica News. — We hear that Mr. F, H. RobinEon- 
take* bis seat permuwnily in the Board of Revenue on TAt. T. 
J. Turner giving over charge about the latter end of next month 
or 1st of February. Mr. W. H. Tyler will, doubtless, tbeir 
permanently sacc«ed to the commissionenhip. and the judgeship 
ofFurrackabad will most probably fall to the lot of Mr. C. Allen, 
now acting in tbe appointment Tbe mi^stracjr of Azimgurb 
to be vacated by Mr. Allen will be filled up by some junior 
officer, or by one returned or returning from furlough. Mr. 
Cunningham wilt, it is said, get the magistracy and collectorate 
of Furruckabad. Mr. Lushinglon remains in tbe Suddur,BCtins 
for Mr. Cartwiigbt. — Agra MeitageT, Dec 89. 

Gabiisok at Pmilloua.— Tbe DeOii Gtieitt states that th» 
garrison at Fhillour is lo be increased by a native ragtsKnt, a 
company of artillery, and one of sappers and miners, as Sis 
Charles Napier considers that fortress tha key of Northern 



DiB. — We regret to observe a 

ment of Ibe death of Prumutbonath Deb, one of the most 
estimable of the native gentlemen of Calcutta. Prumulhenatli 
Deb, and bis brother Aushootosh D^ were assessed by the 
creditors' committee of tiie Union Bank at £60,000, aolely oat 
account of llieir reported ireallb. Tbia demand was at lei^th 
paid, as tbe brothers found tliat a refusal would only lead to Ihe 
adoption of still note severe measures. PrumutbotlBth D«fr 
waa one of the two sons of Ram Doolal Deb, commonly known 
■a Doolal Sirkar, who began the workl with Ba. 5 a month, and 
died worth a million sterling. It is popularly reported that hi» 
two aons have doubled tbe fortune he bcquealbed to tbem. The 
natives of Calcutta are food of repeating an instance of genenHi 
humility furnished by the conduct of lUm Doolal. He waa 
originally a sirkar in Ihe service of ibe wealthy bmily of lh« 
Dults of Halkhota. When he became a millioaaire, be still 
continued to go once a month to their residence, and ask for hia

chiefi to England, on a salary of l,0OU. a year. It would be an 
excellent thing for India if every nalire chief in this country 
were advised to pay a visit to England before mounting the 
masnud. Independently of the expansion of ideas which tia- 
rel necesnrily prodticea, the view of the opulence and power 
of England, which they obtained thereby, would tand to reduce 
Ifaeir conSdenoe in their own power. One of (he moat popular 
hllacies among- (he native princes is, tbat the defeat of our 
Indian aimy would be equivalent to emancipation from British 
controt, and they Bppest to be ignorant of the liict that three 
months would be lufficient to land 30,000 Europeans in India, 
and extinguish fbi ever their hopes of undisturbed command.

intimates his opinion that the Court might have rewarded Sir

between Leadenball street and the Horse Guards remains as yet 
undecided, and thit tbe Court has determined not to remove Sir

VitLAQ* ScHooiJ.— We rejoice (o team that the Court of 
Directors has made a grant of more than lialf a lakh per annum 
for vills^ schools in the North-west presidency. By a judicious 
application of Ibis sum. in establishing and aiding in the support 
of schools, vny much may be done towards supplying every

GwAUoa. — A letter received from Poorsab, dated 15th Dee., 
intbrms us that " tbe march of the 3rH regL Gwalior Contingent 
ha* been delayed. They were to have escorted tha Baee to- 
ward* Boorbanpore, which has been fixed on as her future desti- 
nation, but the Queen Dowager refuEes to remove, and the 
asaiilBnt lesident ia in a Bx. Mr. Bushby is shortly expected, 
when he w^U decide tbe lady's fate. The fbilocing letter, 
dated 19th, is from another correspondent at Gwalior: — " Great 
excitement lieie just now— nothing but troops flying here and 
there. To-morrow morning a detachment, consisting ofa wing 
of Capt. Black's corps, tbe 2nd infantry. Capt. Hawkins's artiL 
Icry, and the 1st cavalry, under Lieut. Adlam, move into the- 
d'latrict in pursuit ofa (akoor named Bhoran Sing, who has been 
plundering and burnuig villages with impunity since last June. 
when the brce under Lieut. Col. Graves failed in catching him. 
Capt. Sale, of (he Snd infantry, goe* in command of tbe whole." 
— Agra Meuaigtr, 

EAn^lHDiaH Rttt-wAT, — If any hopes had been entertained 
here of the commencement of operatiout by the East-Indian- 
Railwsy Company^diirJng the present cold seaaon, they oould not 
have survived the arrival of the last steamer without the engi. 
neen. We have been so long used to disappointment in tliis 
quarter, that we defer our hopes for another year without the 
least sickness at heart ; and although we are aware that tbe 
occasion demands a great deal of indignation, it is so perfectly 
useless to loae one's temper on sucb an occasion, that we recom- 
mend every one to take it cooll}^. The men who are reapoosible 
for the thwarting of every project for improving (he means of 
communication in India will some day be btouglit to trial i but 
so long aa (hey are permitted to have their own way, it is useless 
to cry out against them. We must be thankful for (he smallest 
bvours (ram Leadenball Street and Cannon Row, and comfort our- 
selves with tlie conviction tbat the present system of governing 
India cannot last much longer. As to the Essc-lnd<sn Itailway, 
we have cared very little about ils fate since the Home Govern- 
ment cut olT its other end, leaving it to stop short at Weisanich- 
two, in the midst of (he jungle. We all know that a line to 
Minapore or Benares would be very expensive, and whether i( 
would pt^ at once or not may be a question) but about this 
ninety-mile railway (here !• no question at tlL A railway to 
the moon might pay and it might not, but the latter would bo no- 
argument (or a railway to the clouds. — Hurkaru. 

Sia T. Tusiok's DarALcATioMB. — An attempt has been 
made to show that the Government of India ia equitably re- 
sponsible for the amount lost by the laches of Sir Tboma* Tarlon- 
"The Morxing ChrimieU has started this idea ; it (ays—" It ap> 
peart that tbe Indian Treasury has not of late yeara been exclu- 
sively supplied by native taxation. It happens tbat during the 
wbol* time that Sir T. Turlon held his late office, yearly sums, 
fluctuating in amount, but which in ISM reached upwards of 
3D,000(., have flowed from that very office into tbe Company'a 
Treasury. Those sums have been producod by fce« levied on 
the ettates of Britisb-bom subject*, and hsve passed into the 
Indian Treasury by virtue of an agreement made between the 
Companyand the Supreme Court, whereby, in conaideralion that 
the former would guarantee to the latter certain fixed salaries. 
the Court engaged to make over (be fees levied in the Registrar's 
OBlce." Now if the Indian Treasury had been enriched by fees 
from the eatstes of British subjects, there would be some equity 
in requiring it 10 pay back those fees to make up for defalcations 
in that department, 'The C^roni'cls will, however, be surprised 
to learn tbat this story is quite as bibulous at thai of Sinbad tli« 
Sailor. In tbe agreement made between tbe Company, that is, 
the Government of India, and tbe Supreme Court, Uie Eccle- 
siastical Registrar's Office was made a special exception, and 
when it was arranged that all other offices should be paid by 
salaries, the Registrar's alone coiitinued to be paid by fees, be- 
eauae as the Regiitrar had to look out for business, while busi- 
ness came of its own accord to the other oQIcea by virtue of the 
rules of the Court, it was natu roily supposed, that if be had a fixed 
salary he would cease to have any interest in ferreting out the 
assets of estates, and that Uie bi^irs of those who died intestate 
would tliuB be subjected to the severest losses. Tbe Ecclesiasti- 
cal Registrar's Office, tierefore, has not yielded *''*''S^'^*r>-^^ 
Government ; it has not even yielded that number of ^llm^^Ji^

the oaih, but that be did not consider either of the fbrmi em- 
ployed in the Coun bincting on hit conidenee. Sir A. Bnller

limited by the Act to the case of witneiaea, and that, without 
n>ing iaio the question further then, it will be better that this 
juror fihould leave the bov and another be swam in his place. 
No sooner were these lines read, than people began to a*k eacb

t>Tel the mystery in which his name was Inrolved. Our inqui- 
liea trace him to be one of those who went to England with 
Rajah Rammohnn Rot in 1830, and ia now employed In a pub-

Tm AnDAitiH Isuhd*.— We ha» bean faronied with Uie 
fidlowing interesting communication relatJve to tbe proceedinta 
of tlie commander ^ a smalt vessel of about 80 tons, called the 
Sea Strpent, which proceeded to the wreck of the Enalj/ on the 
part of the purchasers of it; — " The Sta Serpent arrived at 
Amherst about the SOtfa ulcimo, froot tbe wreck of the ship 
Eailg at the Andanan Islands, having on board a tiill cargo of 
lice recovered from the wreck ; bihI also having Captna Shaw, 
and four of the crew <rf the brig Ffymg Fish, tvhom ahe took aff 
one of the Coco Tales on her return lo Manlmain. Tbe captain 
of the Sea Serpent rcpons having had a friendly communication 
with Ibe natives, who asBisled them contjderably, and supplied 
them with wood and water. He also reporti that there still 
mnsina sufficient rice to load the Sea Serpent Area times (ahe 
carrying about TJS tons). When th« whole of the caigo i* 
taken out, they entertain hopes of Boating the vessel oK 
We believe this is the first instance of any friendly intercourse 
having been establiihed with itie savagee of tlie Anilamans, who 
have always been deemed perfectly inlraclable. It is the more 
eitraordinary, coming ao aooa after the visit of the P r v —r pi ne, 
at which they exhibited such llerce hoitflity. We belltTe that 
the Sea Serpen! was not armed, and might easily, of course, bavB 
been cut off by the savages. It ivaa indeed a very bold pro- 
ceeding In the commander to venlurs among them as he did. 
Eilhtr tbe same vessel iaigolog again, or another is to be sent. 
The rice is stated to be in good condition i aud if tbe vessel be 
got off, besides— which seema to be not very improbabhi — the 
purchsiera of the wreck at Be. 160 will make a splendid profit. 
The intereaiing fact for tbe public, bowevcr, ii that of tbe 
friendly disposition eihibited by the aavagei. It is quite un- 
accountable. Jt is gratifying to leam, also, as we do from the 
above report, that Capt. Shaw, of tbe wrecked brig. Flying JFUh, 
whose aomewbat myalerious disappearance we noticed a few 
days ago, was found on one of the Cocas Islands, and bad 
reachEd Maulmain in safely. — StigHtAaan, Jan, 5. 

GOVERNMENT GENERAL ORDERS. 

Head-Qunrten, Camp, Lahore, Dec 13, 1849.— At the late 
review of the troops on the plain of Meean Meer, the lallowiog 
egregious deficiencies were evident to all ; — 

1st, That some commandera of regiments were unable to 
bring their regiments properly into the general line. 

2nd. One commanding offlcer of a regiment attempted to 
-wheel his whole regiment aa he wonld a company ! 

3rd. Several oBicers commanding companies trere seen dis- 
ordering their companies by attempting lo dresa them Itom the 
wrong Bnnk. 

4th. When the line was ordered to be formed on Ihe left 
column, some commanders deployed loo aoon, and ordered their 
lines (thus improperly forraedj to " double guich," in order to 
regain their position t This waa all bad; but it was worse to 
see these regiments, on receiving the word to " doalile jusc*," at 
once charge with loud shouts i no such order to charge having 
been given by any one, nor tbe ivord " prepare to charge," noi d\i 
any thing occur to give a pretext for such a disgraceful scene, 
bxlii biting both want of drill and want of discipline [ 

5th. Bad as this was, it waa not the worst When these re- 
giments ch4^ to " charge," the Cowmander-in-GhieT, to his at- 



aiiag off tlMii Mutket* to the nar over tbtir sbouUeiB aa tlta« 
faMNia (k« will Bot call than aoldlen) w«m nmiiBC *• tlu 
fMMl Ub Ictia aeatued that no siwk ■ Maao OMdd )»■*■•» 
cwnd ia any other rtgineMa ia tbe army : if evar suA agsaa 
ha|)p«ns, be will expoaa the owmaBdiag.aBiaer of any r^iaacDt 
that M> dispaoaa ilaalf, ia public otdera, to lb* vrhoW of tba In- 
dian anny. In the eourst of his service he never before wiC- 
neaaed such a scene. No commander could go into action with 
a raginat capable of Mch conduct wilbont feeling ecrtatn that 
it would behave ill ! The (^ommander-iB-iAief will, Aerefore, 
hoU conmaudiog officcn rtapoDaiUe (Gm they tioat are to 
blaana} that any soldier who shouts, or cfaargea, ot Bres, without 
ordeia, be instantly aeiaed, triad at once by a dnin-bead oauilv 
nwrtial, uad tba sentence executed on tbe spot. Courta-aoartial 
which try such dangerous offenders will, the Conmandet-in* 
chief has no doubt, uphold military discipline Hid mililairj 
honour against outrageoua and crioiinal disorder. 

Tbia Older may be deemed severe : the Comm«nder-in-diief 
means it to be so. for he vill not pass over, without animad- 
version, laulta, which, if talented, would, in tbe event af war, 
produce certain defeat lo this army. Tbe reviews which tfas 
Commander' in- chief makes of the troops are not to betaken aa 
ao many " chips in porridge." Tbey are made for the purpose 
of ascertaining whal officers are fit lo command batlalions, and 
there being no want of such in tlie Indian army, he will feel it 
to be bis bouiidcn duty to remove those who are not ; and when- 
ever he finds a regiment " fire," " shout," or " charge." without 
orders from its commander, he will, after this warning, remuve 
the lattar from his command. 

The sepoy ia both a brave and an obedient soldier ; and when- 
ever he behave* ill, it is in a great measure the faull of his com- 
manding officer. 

The drill and discipline of all armiea teat mainly with the 
commanders of regiments and of companies. Tttey are in im- 
mediate contact with the officers, non-commissioned officers, 
and private soEdien ; and to them general officers must look fi:>r 
that perfect obedience, without which an army is an armed mob, 
dangerous to its fiends, and conlemplible to its enemies. 
I (The Commander -in-ohief does not hereby call on command- 
idff o&cetB lo torment those under tbcir ontera by long and 
harasaing drilling. But b« does call upon tbeoi to inatmct tbeir 
officers, and to instruct thems^ves, and also their supemnmerarj 
ranka, that they are to aeiae any man in their fhmt who darea lo 
sboDt, or talk, or Bre, or run withont orders. General olltcers 
commanding divisions and brigades in this army are called upon 
to see that commandera of tegimeBta do their duties in those 
points. 

The Commander-in-chief doe* not apply Ibis order to all 
commanders I he well knows that there are abwidant first-rate 
soldier* and fint-rate regiments in the Indbn army; but he 
applies it to those whose regiments are in bad order.

MADRAS. 

THE LATE MR. CALDBCOIT. 

Mr. John Cddecott, Bitronomer to the Rajah of Trsvancore, 
who died M TreHndrum on the 16th December, irai bred an 
architect, and u an ailroDOmBr and meteotologiit vai entirely 
teU-Uughl. Abonl 1832 be berame kaowii to the Rajah of T™. 
Taneore, one of the tnoataccompliihed, enlightened, and liberal. 
minded princea in India, who had receiTCd all the cnltiTBtion the 
behest Engliih education could bestow, being well read in the 
tbeoiogjr. literatare, and aciencei ofEuropo, and he resolied to 
indulge hie taatra in a way worthy of ooe who wai not alone a 
pbUosopher amongst prince*, but a prince amongit phllosophera. 
To Mr. Caldecolt, bf thii lime well known aa a meehantdan and 
aitronomer, he intmaled the phinning, ertetion, fumiahine, and 
charge of an aitronomicaj and meteorological obaerratorT. Thoagh 
Intmited «ith unlimited powera, he determined that no ontlajbe- 
jond what wat obaotulely cesential >boDld be incurred on the 
boildmg I but that no expenae ahould be apared in providing in. 
atrvmcnia of tuch lize and quality aa would lecure to the obaerra- 
torj a rank aeeond to none la the world. The nbaenatoiy waa 
erected on a hill of lateriu, abonndiog in granite, two mUea from 
the aea, and 130 feet ahoio higb-waler mark ; it wu teienty feet 
Id length, and thirty in breadth, with three retelling domea. The 
imtnimenU with which it waa at firat provided conaiated of an 
eighteen'inch attitude and aiimnlh, a 'thirty. inch tranait a 
Aiie equatorial, ■ reflecting circle, a forly-aii inch leleacope, and 
three chronometera, all lint-ra-^ of Ibeir kind, and all the priiate 
Pffl*'^ of Mr. Caldccott. The inatrumenU ultimately pro 
Tided by bia Highneaa contiited of a Are-feet tranait, a traniit 
tlodi, two fire-feet mual circlea, an aatronomical clock, an alti- 
iDde and aiimnth, two powerfnl teleacopea, one of tbem a refleo- 
tor. with nuerometera, with a complete aet of magnetic and 
meteorological inatrnmenta. These were aU of the fint-rate de- 
acnption which skill or money conld aecnre. In 1840 the obaer. 
ratory recei.ed an additional supply of magnetic and meteorologl- 
cal inalnmenta, almilar to thote prescribed by the Royal Socioty 
■ndBiiliih Aasociation for the aiity different obserratoriei up and 
down (he world. The taik of arranging and aetting to work, 
single-handed, ao large an eitabliihuent, waa no eaiy one ; and 
the admirable maaner in whioh Mr. Caldecott accomplished » in 
an incredibly abort space of time gareanfficient proof of his entha- 
ataam aa well aa hii ability. We find Mr. Caldecolt, in 1837, 
engaged, with the late diatinguished Madras astronomer. Mr. 
Taylor, in a magnetic autrej of Sonlhem India. Mr. Taykir 
took the eaateni porlioo of the peninsula ; the eiamination of the 
western division wai assigned to Mr. Caldecott. In 1836, the 
admirable lyatem of Bir John Herschel waa promulgated, under 
*\it name of a Report of the South African Anoeiation, and the 
aatronomcra at Madras and Trerandram resoWcd to carry out the 
scheme of connected inquiry, hj means of hourly observation* at 
least one day eirerj month to Ita fullest «i tent. Mr. Caldeeott 
bad now taken a conapicuona place amongst the scientific men of 
India, and his name speedily became as well known in Europe aa 
it had for some time been in the East. He contributed aeferal 
papers on meteoralogy generally, and on temperatures under, 
ground in particular, to the Britiih Association, and was specially 
referred lo iu the address of the President aa iheir " diatingaisbed 
aaiociate, Mr- Caldecott." He bad frram'lB*!, when the general 
srheme of magnetic and meteorological research was commenced 
all orer the world, set himself with hia nasal leal lo the working 
-out of the plan. It was not nntil 1845 that the Royal Society 
determined on Ihe brat mode of pubbahiog the vast mass ot matter 
that had up to this time been collected,— and Ihe Rsjah of Tra. 
rancore, scarcely appreciating the importance of economy of time, 
and little apprehending the calamity that waa at baud, was naln- 
rally anxious that a mass of facta Ihat had been gathered together 
at bis own expense, and under his own direclicns, abonld reach 
the worid through hia own press. Mr- Caldecott had now become 
deeply engaged in preparations for publication, when hit beallb 
began to fail him, and in Jannary. 18-19, he went to Bombay, and 
for some time traretled in the Cancan, Drccen, and Gbants, for 
change of air. He retomed lo Trerandrum, and resumed bit 
laboun in March, and was, up to the time of hia demise, deeply 
occupied in passing through the press Ihe reaulta of the researchei 
of the preceding ten years. 

THE REVISED MADRAS TARIFF. 
Tlie publication of the rerised Madiaa Tariff, which it is ex- 
pected will lake place about ihe middle of next month, will con- 
fer a great benefit upon the mercantile community. The list con. 
taina about forty ilaple articles, of which the prices do not tbtv 
materially, from year to year, and upon which it ia proposed lo 



beliere that the principal credit of this reform ia due lo Mr. Un- 
derwood, the collector of aea customs, bnt it it hardly potaible 
that its adrent conld hare been delayed ao long, had the Cham- 
ber of Commerce performed Its duty properly. For years psst, 
there has been not the alightest ejiproximation between market 
and tariff ralnes. Prices might rise or fall, here or at home, bat 
the tum upon which the merchant bad to pay duty wai fixed aa 
fate, the odiantage resulting in all caaes lo the GoTCmment, 
which had taken care that the original raluation should be made 
according to the maiimnm prices obtained during the most 
favonrable aeasoos of trade. We might cite nameroua examplci 
of the beaiy hardship inflicted by the expiring system. Castor 
oil, for example, the very Bneat aorta of which are bought in the 
market at serenty rapees per candy, ia rained in th« cottomt 
books »t 300 rupees, to that the trader, whilst apparently paying 
only a duty of 3 per cent, ia in reahty charged Marly 9 per cent. 
the dlflin«nee constituticg what will be thought a handsome al- 
lowance of profit on the ahipmcnL Much of the confusion toA 
oil which beset Ihe operations of eommcrce In this PremdcDcy. 
arise hoireier from the jealousy and want of onion which prerail 
amongst the mercantile body. Theexlstenoe of a commoa intereat 
lias nerer yet been recognized, and it ia left with the GoTernoient 
to impose wbaterer rules they please. Whilst dealiog with tlie 
subject of the Custom House, we may as welt inform shipowocra 
of the determination which the anthoriliee hare come lo, of en- 
fonring Ibe payment of port doea, by erery reaeel landing paaaen- 
gers' baggage at Madraa. mtberto it hat baeo Iha ooatom to 
consider that bulk was not brokan eicept by the landing of cargo, 
but a ditoorery waa mada a few days since of ■ quastity of goods 
intended for a firm at Bangalore, which had beeo landed here aa 
paatengera' baggage, the captain of Ibe reasel, a firat-claia trader, 
baring mertly stopped aa bis way lo Calcutta, to put ashore tfaa 
paaaengen intended for Madras. lie goods in question, 
it appears, wen entered in bis bill of lading, but having 
taken personal charge of them, he fancied he might arald 
tronble and the payment of port dues, by endEamurin^ 
to get them paased eb baggage. Tbe result is, that tfaey 
an absolutely forfeited, tbe captain hat made himself liable 
to a beary penalty, and all resscls in future baring passengen'fi>r 
Madras wilt be compelled to pay the port duet, amounting on the 
areragt to more than a hundred rupees, eten though they abonld 
not ttay in the roads for a day, or laud a tingle bale of mer- 
chandise. NumeroDs instances bave lately occurred, lending to 
show how deeply the community at large are tnterelled in die 
conduct ot individuals. Tbe attempt of the oflceri of a eertaiix 
mess Id get caaes of valuable articles paaaed tbrongh on a far in- 
sufficient statement of their ratne, haa pat an end to the confi. 
dence heretofore placed in aimilar declarations, and induced tbe 
authorities to announce, that in future they would talis^ Ibem- 
aelvet by actual inspection of tbe real facta of tbe case. In 
another case, goods imported by a well-known bouse have baeti 
aeiied and sold within the last few days, at prices more than 
eighty per cent, above tbe declared invoice value, to the maniftst 
damage of Ibe faith nanally reposed in merCBntilc probity ; wbilat 
tha imposition attempted by the captain alluded to entails incon- 
venience and expense upon ererj veasel which may visit the port, 
under circumstances similar to hia own. It is dimcult to Omw at 
all times the degree of influence for good or evil whidtbe acts of ■ 
few persons exercise upon society ; bnt tbe rxamplea abore quoted 
will at least be termed cases in point, and we hope the recital of 
tbem will not be without a beneficial effect.— .^fAnitfiDii, Dtc.20. 

UISCELLANEOUS. 
Thi Mail. — T1i« Prtctmor, nriiJi the London mail of the 
84tli^ November, did not reach Madras until the evening of the 
£th inttant. This unusual delay was occasioned bj the ground- 
ing of tbe Ma)lB parkei near Alexandria, By some accident, ■ 
part of Marteillea portion of tbe mail baa been left behind.— 

Loan GoDQii is a paasenger by the Haidmglm lo SuM. Hia 
lordship haa intimated that it ia not his intention to land at 
Madras ; and a deputation will accordingly proceed on board 
the tteamer to pretent the congratulatory address voted at the 
late meeting.— Alheiiam.

Aaaorla. — Tbe aentcoce of tbe coort ia not that which tbe

'rearanaUy cipecled from the nature of the charge!, inaamaeb a> 
doc njBid for the boaoor, reapectability and disciplitte of the 
army would stem to require that an officer who had lo far lost 
'•igbt of what waa doe lo hti oca obaraeter and to tbe credit of 
hia regiment ai to act in the way the prisoner has dona sbonld be 
visited wilb dismissal from Ibe service. A firm eonvietion that 
•scb was tbe only appropriate pnniabnient for tbe oourt lo award 
in this case waaM have led me lo rMom tbe proceedings on tbe 
trial for teviaion ; but I am obliged lo abandon my Intention of 
doing as, owing to the great inconvenience that wonld arise to tbe 
servioe in again collecting together tbe members of the eonrt 
from Ibe tariona ststiona, and to the delay that would thereby be 
vnavoidably ioearred, which would subject Ensign Alston, who 
boa already been upwards of six monllis in arrest, to (urtber con- 
finement for neariy a similar period. 

I consider that an officer who hoa eipoaed himself lo tbe ridi- 
tale and contempt of hla inferiors can scarcely for some time to 
come be considered fit to exercise lathoriCy over them with ad- 
vantage, and eerlainly not to tit in judgment upon Ihem. I there- 
fore desire Ibat Bosign Alston may not be permitted to ait as 
member of any court-martial unlil farther orders, and the oom- 



manding officer will be pleased to report half-yearly to the adjn. 
tant-general of the army upon hia conduct, for my information.

MISCELLANEOUa 
Dk. MosoKori'i TiuTMnrr op Choliia. — Dr. HcMgrore'i 
dieocT, M to Ibe treument of cholera, is lliiu Elatecl b^ him : 
" It bM long been a miller of surprise to me, not merely tbaC 
■ny ibould oppose the adminlBtralion of cold water, but tbat it 
biu not toog ere Ibii taken its place aa the first and mo«t power- 
fid remedial agent. It U tlie remedj \Thicb nHture diclatM, and 
which nature calls Tor. If any intellij^enl physician were asked, 
what would be bU mode of treating a disease, tiM character and 
^mptoma of vrtiich were netr to him, the replj' undoubtedly 
would be, ' to watctt cBreTully what nature wa» doing to reinOTe 
the diaeaae, and to endearour by reoiedial meMurea to assist bei 
in the attaioment orthat object' But what does the history of 
diolen teacb u>? That, in tbis disease, the efforts of nature 
haT«been disregarded ; she has called with a voice one would 
IWTe guppoied loud enough to arouse the least observant practi- 
tioner, but without avail ; instead of her dictates being followed, 
human reason ha* sat in judgment on the indication nature bat 
giren, and the constant and urgent cr; for waler, wtttr, haa 



SrajLinii DicisioH. — Amongst the legal intelligence con- 
veyed b; this mail, is the report of a curious case, which oc- 
curred in the Supreow Court of Bombay. A native woman of 
that particular eaite, the pursuits of which are unfit to be 
named, had two children by an Engliah gentleman, now de- 
deceased. Thtf were of the respective ages of Ave and two 
years; the mother, after their father's death, took them to her 
own hokne in the Bausr, whence by a strataitem they were re- 
nMved from her, and placed mider the care of a Miss Hughes, 
wbo superintends one of the Christian educational establish- 
ments here. A ntit of hahiai eorpta was lued out by the 
mother, and after bearing counsel on both sidea, the Fuiane 
Judge (Sir W. Yardley) decided that the children must be de- 
livered up to the mother, aa of l^al li^t. Immediately aftci 
the optional order, the mother claimed the ohiMm, into had 
beesi in Court the whole day ; aod she carried th« Ultle girl out 
of court herself, the boy being taken out by a roagh-lookii^ 
n^vc, apparently her bully. The little twy, on getting into the 
street, cried bitterly, snd tned to get ont of the arm* of his 
captor, wbo seemed to take very tittle notice of bis distress. 

CuoLKiA HosrnAL.— We understand that the new mode of 
treating cholera patienia, suggested by Dr. Musgrove, is about 
to have an extensive trial. The following paragraph will be 
leadwith interest on tbis important subject:—" We undentaod 
that the Cholera Hospital Committee have resolved on ad- 
dteating a letter to govemmenl, re com mending that the insti- 
tution ba maintained on its pment footing for a period of at 
least two years, and that Dr. Musgrove be permitted to remain 
in Bombay, for the purpose of giving it the benefit of his per- 
sona! superintendence. A* the advantages of the system of 
treaunent pursued in this infirmary seems to be now pretty 
gwertlly admitted, tile request* of the committee will, we 
apprehend, be without hesitation acceded to." — Tdegrafli 

BiLOAtrH, 3Ist DiccHiia, I B19.— Major- General Barr, ac- 
companied by Captain Stack, asiktaot adjutant general, started 
tliis morning for Dbarwar, to review the 6th Madras N.I., after 
which he visits other stations of the division for tbe same pur- 
poas. — The bead-quaiter* and right wing of tbe Snd Bnropaan 
light inbntry, under ll>e command of Major Mscan, comprising 
3 captains, ]l subalterns, 631 rank and file, and about 70 camp 
foUowers, arrived here on tlie morning of the S8th instant i tb^ 
landed at Vingorla, from Aden, on the I5lh.— On the 29tb, the 
3rd regt. Madras liglit infantry, under the command of Lieut.- 
col, Whitlock — a dashing old soldier — consisting of 3 captains, 
B lieutenants, 3 ensigns, 1 assistant surgeon, 18 native officer*, 
and about 8!0 rank and file, arrived here, and stsrls again or (he 
3n] January for Vingorla. whence it embarks for Aden, The 
regiment ha* served in tliis division upwards of five years, wns 
present and partlcipatetl in all the dangers of tlie Kolapore cam. 
jHdgn of IB14-5, and is considered one of the finest disciplined 
corps in the Madras army. It has a fine set of officers; not a 
single court-martial, 1 believe, has occurred during 
this division — which alone will speak as to its effit 
ofBcers are liked by all classes, and it is said they are 
tertained by the officers of tbe 8nd Europesns and I3tfa B.N. I., 
before their departure. — Mr. Reeves, the collector and political 
agent, is expected here about the 80th January, on his nay to 
the dislricts on deputation ; he is now nesr Kulladghee.— The 
weather has become cold and very pleasant ; and tbe cultivators 
around us are very busy gathering in their hr'vest. — Soabag 



The Couuebcial Bake ha* declared a dividend at the rate of 
eight per cent, per annum for tbe past six month*. Tbe fot^ 
profits of the half.yeaiaBiount to Rs. l.B1,70A. 8a.8p.,ef1rt>ich, 
R*. 1,47,180 are to be divided, and the remainder carried t» 
credit of reserve fund, which on the lllh January amounted to 
Rs. 51,974. 9a. lOp. Tbe losses of the bank during the ris. 
miwtbs amotmted to Rs.89,ia8. 13a. Sp. 
' CoTTOH-aiMHUia. — Messrs. Ritchie, Stewart, and Co., of 
Bombay, have applied to Government for pemiitaion to eiecc 
macbhiery at Baniach for the purpose of ginning cotton. 

SciNni.— We are glad to hear that Captain Campbell, of th* 
Bleam frigate Queen, has, during the protncted slay of bis ves- 
sel at Kurtaehee, done moat important service in tracing out ■ 
channel of approach through the mud close to the shores 
Buoys were twing laid down, and It is hoped that hereafter the 
vast delay and inconvenience experienced by vessels of any con- 
siderable burthen ofif tlie great seaport of Young Egypt will be 
found surmountable without mueh difflcnlty. 



Uti 



—We bare been favoared widi the fallowini 



idatory of the character and services of SuperintendiuK- 
snrgeon Tumbull, of tbe Nium's army, wbo i* about to visit 
Europe. Dr. Tumbull is said fully to deserve the eulogy of the 
authorities, " He ha* outlived," says our correspondent, " tbe 
rest of the old locals, and ha* reached tbe age of sixty-fire yesn. 
Majr be obtain bis pension, and ertjoy happiness and tranquiUity 
during (lie rest of bis day. I believe it is nearly certain tile 
court will leave it optional with tbe Niiam to ■sbablista pentioiis 
for the locals."— Eiiraet of G. O. 15tb Nov. 1849. SuperiDtend- 
ing-surgeon Tumbull having intimated hit intention of quitttng- 
Bolarum on the 17th instant, I beg to express ny entire ap- 
proval of the manner in which he has diadiargcd the impottant 
dode* of fats oflee from tbe tlete when be was first ap- 
pointed to it in December, 1841, up to the present date, 
mdudlng a period of nearly eight years. But I tegtt& 
the expression of general approval as insufficient, and 
desire to place on more special record tha high sense I 
entertun of his active Hal in the perfonnsnce of hi* numerous 
duties, and the honounble impartiality with which be bee eves 
brought the claims and merits of all classes of tbe medical de- 
partment to my notice, and has thus alTorded me valuable 
as«i*tanee in tbe eeveial case* connected n-hh this brandi of 
die service, wherein I have had occasion to consult faim. X 
request Superintending- surgeon Tumbull to accept my sincere 
wishes fi>T tbe restoration of hli health, and roy assumnce tluC

OOVBRNMENT GENERAL ORDEBS. 



Bamiaf Cattte, Jan. 1, 1850.— The lUght Hononrable the 

{ovemar in Council is pleased to 

rom the Honourable Court'* let 
dated tbe 16th December, 1807. 

4. The fieqaeat applicatlooa that have been aaade to aa bj^- 
oSoara of onr several military estabUshments Id India, when ut- 
Eerope, for advances of money on loan , under tbe pies of tbelr 
being otherwisB nnible to retam to their daty. hare not only 
cansed mnch trouble and iaeonienience, but tn some initances the 
Company have sustained loss by the death of tbe parties to oboin 
■ucb advances have occaaioDolly been made, and tbis practice haa 
of late years inereaaed. 

6. As, under the Regulations of 1796, tbe military officers ara- 
allowed to come home on furlough, and to receive their pay, and, 
in regard to subalterns, are further indulged with paasage- money 
home, their litnatians bare been coniiderably itnproved, and they- 
canitot reasonably expect any additional indulgence of the nature 
above mentioned : to prevent, therefore, all expectation of the 
title in Atture, we direct that you publish in General Orders to tbe 
army, that we have been under the neoeisitj of ooming to tbe 
resolution of declaring, tbit oSicera at home ore not hereafter to. 
expect that applications for advances of money beyond what Uiey 
are allowed by the existing Regulations of the service will be. 
attended to. 

6. This regulation is to be considered a* eitendiog to the- 
marine officers of your establishment.

LITERATURE AND SCIENCE. 

At tbe monthlf meeting of Ibe Roy*l Asiilic Society, on the 
I61I1 instuit,— bis Rojal Higlineu Prince Albert, a Vice-Facron 
of the Society, preiiding, — M«joi Rawlintan, c.b., resumed Cbc 
reading al hii most valu&ble and interesting nemair upon tbe 
ABiyrian and Babylanisn iDscrtptionB in the cuneiform character, 
which promise to throir a very distinct light not only upon 
prohne history, bul upon tbe historical records contained in llie 
Script met. 

Alter a few introductory remarks upon the nature of the lan- 
go»ge and the dass of dialects to which it belongK, Major Raw- 
Union give a Tcry aMiaraclory account of the manner in whicb, 
■ftar much labour, Ibc interpntstion of these curious characters 
iras effected. In Mm< parts of Persia, ancient monuments, 
bearing trilingual inwiiptions, Mill exist, one of tbe tijree being 
written tn tbe cuoeifonn or arrow-head character. Tliese mona- 
inents date from the time of Cyrua the Great to Darius Codoma- 
nus. The matter of the inscriptions was naturally assumed to 
be identical, and by a proceta, analogous to that employed in 
tbe interpretation of the Egyptian hieroglyphs, by tbe trilin- 
gual inscriptions on the Roeetta stone, tbe i-alues of different 
cuneiform characters were ascertained. Here, however, a dilfi- 
«u1ty occurred not met with in the interpretation of the hiero- 
glyphs, which could be rendered into Coptic, a known language, 
the language or languages of the Assyrian inscriptions being un- 
Itnown. Step by step, with mucb toil and patience, aided by 
Ike recent dueidationi of the ancient Orienul characters, the 
meanings of many word* were dlMorcred, niOlcient to reresl 
the grammatical structure of the langu^e, and so much oF its 
roeabulary, that out o^ perhaps, 5,000 words, the sense of SOO, 
On moat common and important, is exactly known, and that oF 
otbera appro.\imaIely. Casts of some of the Persian inscriptions 
in tbe cnoeilbrm character, relating to erenta in the reigns of 
. Khshayaraba (Xerxes) and Dsryavuah (Darius), were exhibited 
in the room. 

Major Rawlinson demonstrated the truth of a proposition he 
stated at the last meeting, that the language ivas essentially of 
tbe Semitic class, haring decided affinities with the Hebrew, 
Cliahlee, Arabic, and Alamean, many of the terms being identl- 
caL Its peculiarities, however, present difficulties : thus abbre- 
viations are freely u»ed ; the number of homophons is very great ; 
the f and o appear to be indiscriminately need; which is, liowerer, 
not without example in European languages, as, in French, 
mtre tor alltr, &e. M^or Bawlinson pmnted out nrious other 
peculiarities in tbe fMrts of xpeoch, Many of the vcrtn resemble 
tbe Hebrew. Tbe roots or stem words, be obaened, are, how- 
ever, hiliteral; thus discovering a greater simplicity than the He- 
brew and Arabic, in which the roots are generally trillteral. 
The conjugation ot tbe verb is not effected, like Hebrew, liy 
iiuffixes, but by prefiiea, which are joined to the stem-lettere, 
without producing any change of rowels. There »re voices or 
conjogstions libe those in Hebrew ; a niphal, hiphil, ^d hitb- 
paelcao be discerned. The chsracters, he thinks, mny Iiave 
been borrowed originally fiom Egypt. They are, in his opinion, 
essentially the same, and hare (he same power, in ail the cunei- 
form inscriptions, throughout Assyria. Bubylonis, Armenis, 
Suaiana, and Elymais, But he candidly acknowledged tlul, 
although much has been done, the science of these languages is 
■till in its infancy. 

Mnjor Rawlinson read translations of some of the inscriptions, 
containing annals, and reccrda of events (a sort of Assyrian 
Qaietta), in which mention ia made of Egypt (Miara), Syria, 
-and, as would appear, of the Greeks, under the name of Foraiw, 
ot lonians. One of the inscriptions records the grant of a 
Phoenician port for aeivices rendered by " Melanthus, Prince of 
Athens." Eeferences are likewise made to the Scythian dynaa- 
(ies, 01 S«cn. 



In the course of his disquisition, Mqor Rawlinson e 
in some detail the theory that certain princes of the Khorsabsd 
atid Kouyunjik dynasties, meiitioneil in Cuneifonn inscriptions, 
were identical with the Shalmaneser, Sennacherib, and Esv- 
haddon of Scripture. He stated the evidence pro and con with 
great impartiality, and concluded by pronouncing against tbe 

One very reuiarkalilc fact mentioned by him was that, whereas 
there was reason to believe it to bare been tbe practice to stamp 
the bricks used in building, in the Assyrian empire, with the name 
of the reigning king, he had examined many bricks found within 
a hundred miles of Babylon, and erery one was marked with the 
name of " Nebueh.-idnezxar, son of Nabopolassar." Thia fsct 
seems, at be remarked, to prove that that monarch wa« tte 
real founder oftlie city, tliereby literally confirming tba deelsn- 
tion attributed to bim by Daniel (i*. 30), " Is not this great 
Babylon that I hare built?" Major Rawlinson recomneniled 
search for antiquities to be prosecuted in Lower Chaldea, where 
remains of sniHent cities ^>ou tided. 

The subject of this highly interesting paper wm illustralec) by 
curious cylinder.', casts of inscriptions, drawings^ &c., to ifhicb 
the prince paid much attention, and, on taking his deportwe, 
paid some Battering compliments to Major Rawlinson. 

The meeting, as on the former occasion, was an extremely 
full one, and comprised many persons of rank and emtnencs ia 
Oriental learuii;g. 

We have no right nor desire. In a pately scientific inquiry, to 
assume the unity of the human race; but [f we do to, and believe 
that all languages ttegan with a comnron primevd rocBbulary, or 
eren that there are families of languages, it must follow from 
these premises that all unwritten tongues are mcessantl^ ebai%- 
iog, and that in process of time alt resemblance, save in stnic- 
ture and a few scattered words, is oblitnated. We thhilc we 
can demonstrate from observation, and without any refermce ta 
the qoestion oF unity of race, that this is the natural tendency o( 
oral language in all uncivilized regrons. A slow metamorpliMto 
goes on even in written languages of civilized races, as ia well 
illustrated by the German. How mucb more must it be the 
case with the wholly unwritten language* oT forest tribe* lilc« 
those of the Malay Peninsula ! 

IF the laws of development,— i. e. lawi expressing not only ihe 
mode and rate of development when citeamttancca roiBMB Ihg 
same, but under tbe known changes awl combinationa vtetuagu^ 
—were better known, languages might b« Ibund to preserve die 
chronology of the race, a rude one certainly, somewhat •nalogodt 
to the geological. For instance, U tbe l>ngiuc«<f tbe Saadvkfc 
Islands has mucb in common with tba MoUyu of Smnatn, the 
separation from a common stock must have been lessancient tbait 
in another island evidently peopled by the tame race and aiml- 
larly circumstanced, geograpbically and hiatorieally, in vhlefa the 
language has more diverged. 

The nomadic habit of ■ race may preserve resemblance of lan- 
guage. 1st. Because it implies a retention of the same habit* 
under geographical circumstances which admit of that relentiiMl. 
2nd. Because it kcepa open the communication between the 
families of the race, exgr. the nomadic pastoral Tartar, tbe no- 
madic maritime Maluyu. But if any family becomes (lied and 
isolated, with the loss of the nomadic babit the language will 
diverge, ix.gr. wild tribes of the mouotaiiu In tbe HaJar 
Archipelsgo almost every island exhibits evidences of the CO- 
eiisierice of both phenomena. The first operation of such ■ re- 
gion is to produce a vast nnmber of distinct ftmiliea or petty 
tribes and dialects. Civiiiiation and power, growing out of tJte 
increase of population in favourable localities, first check and 
then reverse ibis operation. On the great ethnic stage, barba- 
rism creates languages, civilization destroys them. The great 
ethnic power of the first is repulsion, and of tbe last attractiOB. 
The further we go back in the history of ilia Archipelago, up to ■ 
certain epoch, the more tribes and dialects we shall find. There 
are single islands in it, of small extent, which, having remained 
isolated, posseu more dialects than alt the wide region ot Poly- 
nesia. The conclusion ia inevitable that the population of tbe 
latter is comparatively modern. They must have left the Arehi- 
pelago at a late epoch in its history, perhaps one not long pre- 
ceding its discovery by the Peninsular Indians, and certainly 
subsequent to the full development of its indigenous civilization.

ALLEN'S INDIAN MAIL, 

LONDON, 
THURSDAY. Februarif 21. 1850. 

Thb teheme of goTerament for tbe coloniet, dereloped 
1^ tbe Fint Uinister of the Crown, in the Houie of Coni- 
■nona, on tbe llth February, would hare appeared, fifty 
7am ago, to be tbe extrangaut conception of aome radical 
Tiuonarr, rather than the aober aod deliberate concluaion 
of the adviaera of the Crown; rather aa an expedient for 
rnnriag tbe colonie* from the mother conntry, than for 
enaenting thor connectioD. But the alow and cautioua 
march of legislation in thoH days would ill suit the gene* 
tMwb that bai witoeated tbe birth of railroads and of 
declric tdegrapha. Political meaaurea muM be now-a-daya 
inronipt; tbey matt be, moreover, large and generona. 

The faint outline of the new colonial policj, sketched laat 
ficMkm, has been perfected in the recent apeecb of Lord 
John Rtmell, and the details have been, aa far aa regards 
an important claaa of the colonies, digested in the Bill, now 
before Parliament, " for the batter goverDment of her 
Hajegt]^! Australian Colonies." The views of the Ministry 
aa U> tbe priocif^a of that policy are of tbe moat enlarged 
and libenl character. Aa a general rule, the maxim of oar 
,aDcea(ors,— whose wisdom we are lomelimes taoght to 
despise, — is to bo acted upon, that " wherever Englishmen 
go, tbey should enjoy English freedom and English institu- 
tions ;" and that political freedom is the birthright of oar 
calonistB. 

An anuDuncement like this would have taken away the 
breath of a Tory House of Commons in the reign of George 
die Third ; yet, even if it bad not the warranty of aoces- 
. lorial aanction, tbete is nothing really alarming in the prin- 
dple itennnciatet. Tbe principle of representative gorern- 
mcDt, which i« tbe essence of what is termed " English 



freedom " and " Engliah Institutions," baa been gradually 
eipandiog into wider action at home. The House of CoiQ- 
roona has been reformed, with a view of making its consti> 
tution conform more nearly Co that ptineiple ; mitnicipal 
institutions have been reconstructed upon the same basis ; 
and, in abort, the theory that representation is the true 
foandaiion npon which all legielatire government rests, is 
ao universally admitted, that the only controversy which 
ever arises is as to tbe exceptions to a rule adinowledged to 
be general. 

The Australian Coloniea Govemmeot Bill proposea to 
apply this principle to those remote poaaesaioDS, with modi- 
fications which, under the circnmstaneet, do not appear to 
trench npon it, althoiigh they aSord a conveaient peg oa 
which opponents of the scheme may bang lome popular 
arguments. Tbe colonies embraced by Aia Bill are thole 
of New South Wales, South Australia, Port Phillip (to be 
detached hvm New South Wales, and hereafter called 
" Victoria,"), Western Australia, and Van Diemen's Land. 
Each of theae colonies is to have a Legislative Chamber, 
partly elected by the jicople, and parUy nominated by the 
Crown ; and power is given to these fonr separate colonie* 
to form a General Assembly or Federal Council, for the 
determination of certua questione, in which the coloniea ara 
jointiy and collectively interested. Thia scheme is, in its 
main features, extremely simple. Let us briefly examine 
aome of the detsila, aa they ara prestntad in the Bill. 

Eacb of die fonr colonies ia ts have a single chambar, 
one-third of the members to be nominated by her Majesty 
and the remainder by the inhabitants of the colony. The 
reason giren for the adaption of a single inateed of a 
double chamber, — analogous to tbe Upper House and 
Lower House of the British Pariiament, — is, that the coloniea 
prefer the single chamber, the present form of eoastitution 
in those which hai'c a local legislature, though it does not 
appear that the option was ever distinctly offered to them : 
but power is given by the Bill to the governor and legisla- 
tive council of each colony, with tbe assent of the Crown, 
to vary the constitution of the council, and to establiab, 
iaatead of a legislative council, a oouaetl Hid a bMiaa of 
represents lives, or other legislative house. 

The existing governors and councila, or, where there is no 
coanetVthe future legistative oouncil, ara ta hava thepowar 
of determiningthe number of members of which the connril 
is to eanaiat, to divide the colony into convenient electoral 
districts, and the measures necessary for the orderly, 
effective, and impartial condnet of elections. 

The governors and councils of the colouiea are to have 
authority to make laws for the peace, welfare, and good 
government of the same, and to appropriate to the public 
service within the colonies the whole of the colonial reve- 
nuea arising from taxes, duties, rates, and imposts levied 
on her Majesty's subjects within the said colonies; pro- 
vided that no such law shall be repugnant to the law of 
England, or interfere with the appropriation of Grown 
lands, and no money shall be applied to the public service 
unleu the governor shall first have recommended its speci- 
fic application. 

The revenues of each colony are charged with the ex- 
penses of the management thereof; and out of the colonial 
revenue are to be annually paid to her Majesty certain 
specified sums for the civil and judicial services of the 
colony, together with a sum for "public worship."

plan is, to be sure, nothinf oiore nor lesi than a simple line of 
nilway, but thii line is to connect, by a direct aod penuanent 
way, the two stations of Calais and Hooltan. 

Alloffing a few mhmte* for tbe snbsidenoe of the inrrrdolity 
•nd bewilderment which auch a propoiat will create, even in miada 
bmiliarized vith the eipaosibility of trunk lines, and the intrepi- 
-Afty of projeoton, we may proceed to make tbe scheme a litlle 
BNTe comprebeoiible. Difficulties, it is said, vanish when you 
close with them, and perhaps aome of those already riaing in the 
reader's mind may wear a less formidable aspect when contem. 
plated from a nearer paint of view. In point of fhct, the distance 
between England and India is of a very bbnlooi and artiKclal cha- 
ncier. It uKd to be called 10,000, 12.000, or eieo 15,000 nilea. 
He time coasumed in traversing it has laried fraoi nine months 
to three. Sir Arthur Wellesley modeitly stipnlated for four, as 
die Unit of tbe period within wbtoh there shonld be always a 
steady and constant oammnnioation bettreen Porlamonth and Cal- 
cnlta. At the present time tbe journey from Bombay to South- 
ampton ia usnally performed in soma thirty-fite or forty days, 
and there seems to be abuDdanee of room for still Further ahorten- 
ing the transit. For, after all, when we look at the plain facts of 
Ihe case, India is only some few hundred miles further from ni 
than the United Stales, though we hate come to consider the lat- 
ter country as lying at onr doora, while we still regard Ihe former 
as one of the uttermost parUofthe earth. From Spitbead toNew 
Tork it is 2,B20 milei, from Osteud to Hyderabad, on the Indos, 
it la only 3,865. 

Most certain^ nobody baa ever yet looked opon one of these 
jenrneyaaibeiogonly 900 miles longer than the other; but if the 
"Direct Calais and Mooltan" eier comes Into operation, the 
longer will become actually the shorter of tbe two. Now, let ns 
look at the aeieral stages of this tery edifying joumey. In tbe 
firat place, instead of starting from Calais or Oateod , we may start 
from Vienna, for up to that point railway communication may be 
eotuldered as already complete. Prom Vienna the line is, or was, 
actually open to Pssth ; bat here we are stopped, and the nest 
Step, therefore, is to carry it as directly «■ poaaible to Constanti- 
nople. For this purpose it ia projected to take a due southward 
Coarae from Pesth, through the leJley between tbe Tbeiasand the 



Daonb*, ereM>n(1kelatlerri«eralilDa MawtkejoHtioaaf Ike 
Drava, ud entering tbe Europaan territoriea of TDrk^jostl^ 
Belgrade. From tbla point to Cosetanthio^ intervenes a dis- 
tance of about 600 miles, over wbish the line wiU nu almit the 
valley of the DaBofae, pietty nearly to Niaopiriis, wbsa it will 
make a southward bend to ost the Balkan, apparently byapaas.it 
its own, a litlle north-west of Eskiiara. After tbia tbe contte 
(hroagh Adrianople to the Bosphorusis clear enough, and SO we 
stand at length on the borders of Europe and Asia, with abont 
one-third of the wholejoumey acoomplished, and 2,400 miles sdU 
remaining before ni — a loogish stage, certainly, but not longer 
than will be in actual operation in the Uiuted States before Gtc 
years are out. 

Turkey in Asia ia now to be trueraed from angle to angle— 
from Scutari to Bsara— saying DOtliiag, for the preaent, ahout the 
Straits. Tbe line will past over the memorable field of Angora, 
the scene of Bluet's defeat, and wiil then shoot with thestrslgU- 
ucis of an arrow between the Euphrates and the Tigris — the an- 
cient regioBs of Mesopotamia. Tbe rtiins and Klica of Nineveh 
will be brooght doae to baud. Babylon and Bagdad cannot fdl 
of beiog attractive stations, even for thoae who stop shott of Snsa 
■■d Ecbatana ; and, before we have well ncoiered from tbe sen- 
aatioBs occasioaed by the scenery, wc shall find ouiaelTes on the 
ihorea of the Persian Gulf, about 2,800 milea from oor startii^ 
port in the Channel. For the last 200 leagues the road will have 
lain thnu^b antedilotiaa cities, cyolopaan rem aina, gigantic scoly- 
hiras, aystariaaseicavations.bituminoiulBlMa, and mosaic wi" 



It eoterpriaing LrueUaea 



and we may reaaanably pause for a few 
oar tbeodolitea upon traots which the m 
have jet but iaperlwtly explored. 

We iiave now two rentes open to as. We may either take tbe 
great Desert of Kirman, and tbe miUa of Wcilain A%ha>i*(MI, 
driring right Chroogh the Solyman range of mountains, and 
Striking onr Indian torritoriei pretty bigb np in tbe Pnnjrf) s Br 
we may skirt the south-western coast of Persia, run exactly 
through the centre of BelooebUlao, and debouch direotlT upon the 
old capital of tbe Ameen of Scinde. Onr surveys, traffic calcota- 
tions, Gic, are here mainly confined to certain statistics rcspeotlng 
the capacities of loaded camels, end tbe tiaoka of periodical can- 
vani ; but tbe project before ns prodeatly deoidea in (atour of the 
latter-mentioned route i and the line accordingly passing right 
through the ruins of Fenepolis, cuts the Beloochee frontier at ita 
middle point, and then, turning a little southward, skirts the 
whole length of the aea coast under the bills, and at length creeses 
the Indus a litlle below Meeouec. The distance traversed in OaaB 
two stages is about 550 miles in Persia, and, ss nearly as possible, 
tbe same in Beloochiitati, Perhaps, at this point, it may be ad- 
visable to mention, for genersl inronnetiDn, that Bdnochislas ia a 
country bounded on the north by Affgbanistan, on the west and 
east bj Persia and Scinde, and on the south by the Arabian aea, 
and tenanted by an Indefinable race, living under no deacribsWo 
government. If, after this, we cannot anap onr ftngan at Ihe 
Yankees, it will, as they express it, " be s pily-" 

Yet the total estimated cost of (his mlracnlona design is cnty 
34,050,000*.— a sum which might indeed baie appeared con»ldav- 
able to Adam Smith, but which ia a mere trifle aooording to proeat 
nations, and which, in fact, acaroely eioeeds what haa been ai*aai}j' 
spent opon two domestic railways. The total annual intereat on 
tbe capital is under 2,000,0002., and the portion whieb, aecordiMg 
to tbe terms of the prqoct would bavo to be defNyed by tha 
"Goremment" of Belooehistan ia only 275,009/. We dkOsM 
like, however, to hear Sir Charles Napier's opinion upon the 
amenability of this interesting population to proper instruetiOD 
upon the points of inlernational inlerconrse, free trade, CriiinM 
loans, and funded debt ; nor can wc penuade onraelvea that Ike 
apparition of the projected oaueeway would be nnaocompawad 
with a oertun degree of shntptness in some of tbe districts of Par. 
sia and Asia Minor. " Engineering dtlficuMes," we are wdU 
aware, have now no place in a prqactor's vooabalary, nor is it <t 
they should have i but there are other not unimportant consider- 
ations in the case of a scheme like this. However, we have at 
last hirly beaten the Americans in comprriienidve surreys Mftd 
andamooB speoolation, and we hive abondant re a soos for bolia^Sg 
that the scheme wbicb we have here detailed has actoally boan 
considered for years, has been digested with tbe aid of all acceaei- 
ble information, and baa been devised with no other end than tlmt 
of promoting a great national good. — Tfisas.

Plato'aaith, "Whosoever seeketh, kitoweth that which he seehAh 
for in a generel nouon. else how shall he know it wben be hUh

Tbe tbird umul general meeting of ttais companjwH held on 
de I9th inst., Hr. Aglfonby, M.P., chairmsii of tbe Board of 
DfrectoTS, in lbs chair. 

The dtairmaM said be would mihe • few observationi a« lo

tiBie, and Ifaejr were in exact conformil; with the form* required 
by Oie Joint Stock Act. At present, the direcCon were not 
jet acquainted with the mode in wbicb tbe Inrtian GoTernmetit 
would receive the ealU from the BharebolLlera in India. It was 
detirable that tbe parmenta abould be made in India, without 
tnniraiKion to Engl&nd, but wtiecher that mode would be 
adtipted, he was not at present able lo state. All the hooks kept 
bj tbe director!, a» well be all the accounts which pasaed be- 
tween them and die East-India Company, or any other person, 
trere open to inspection by the proprietors. Tbis, he conceived, 
would be the best way erf' giving InformBtion. Under the ar- 
rangement with tbe Government of India, aa well as under the 
Act of Parliament, the proprictora would have the eisenlial 
baneflt of a GoTemment audit i for not only was an ec qjjicta 
director appointed by tbe Eaat-India Company, but the accounts 
were submitted to an independent accountant appointed by the 
ObvCTnnienL These functionariea bad gone throngh tbe ae. 
eonnts, and were entirely sstislled both with tbe mode of keep- 
ing Ihem and with the result. Another great wcurity which 
they had wa«, that under no eircumatanees couid any money be 
dtawn without the sanction of the Eaat-India Company, Ibr 
tbeii ez o^io director had ■ Beat at the board, and would at all 
tilnea be able to see what was necessary to be done, so that if 
tftere ahould be any over-drawing of accounta, or any application 
oT money to an improper object, that would immedlBtelj be 
■topped by that officer. He understood some ahareholden ap- 
pevcd to thmk that there waa some mystery in the accounta,

Mr, Haifa said, tbe proceeding of Mr. Baillie with regaid to 
Ceylon bad been mariced triili liia usual injustice and want of 
candour. There bad been no refusal of witnesses ; the witnesses 
iMtned bj tbe committee liad been sent for and were now in this 
eoanU7, and he denied that tli« committee liad giren power to 
their cliaiTinra to name witnesses, the eipense of bringing whom 
would be from 4001. to 700J. each. Mr. Hiwes appealed to the 
House whether Mr. Baillie'a personal attacks, especially upon 
Capt. Watson, one ol tbe witnesses to be examined before tbe 
cooimiltee, were not moat unjust. 

Mr. JTiuas said, as long as he could do his duty in that House, 
he would take care that the alrocioua proceedings in Ceylon 
■bould be inquired into, in spite of the unparalleled tinraimeas of 
the Government, 

' Mr. Disradi accused Mr. Hawes of mystifying the House by 
tbe manner in whieh he had read the documents, and declared it 
would not be ctediuble to the House to desert liielr committee. 
Considering that the conduct of the GoTcmment had been of a 
tendency to evade a fair ioquiry, lie proposed to amend the mo- 
tion by adding tbe words, that " in consenting to the reappoint- 
ment of the committee, the House deemed it expedient to ex- 
press its disapprobation of the manner in which her ItUjesty*B 
GOTCfnment lud evaded the undertaking of last session lor the 
further production of witnesses." 

Lord J. Runff gave his exposition of the nature of the under, 
taking given last session, and contended that the committee hod 
gone beyond its l^itiinate powers if it meant to delegate to its 
chairman an absolute authonty to command a Secretary of State 
to summon any witnesses he might choose to name, without 
leaaons assigned. Had proper eiplanatious been given. Earl 
Grey would have secured the ■Itendance of the witnesses. Lord 
John regretted that Mr. Baillie should liave raised these painful 
^scustioni, which wouM tend to disturb tbe Iraaquillity of tbe 
colony, where {nflamoiatory reports were already in circulation, 
■o that the peace and happiness of an important poaaeasioo of the 
Btitiah Crown were ioTotved in this question. 

Sir J. Graham, in very handsome tenus, exonerated Lord J, 
ItuEsell from the ebaige of having violated his promise; his 
general impressioo, from ttie noble Lord's chancter, was con- 
firmed by his*ecollecdon of what occurred. But practically the 
great question was, doi a vote of censure moved without notice, 
but what the ends of justice required. It was ioi possible that 
this inquiry could be stifled ; it must be prosecuted without re- 
serve, and witli the least possible delsy. 

Jfr. Diaradi acknowledged that the amendment was open to 
otnection for want of notice, and offered to withdraw It ; but 

Lord J. Rtutell refused his consent, and the House divided, 
when the unendment was negatived by 140 to 68. 

Mr. Hmu then moved a resolution that certain witnetses 
should be summoned to attend tlie committee, which Lord J. 
Bussell resisted, as a vole of censure upon the committee, and 
upon a division this motion was negatived by 109 to tOO. 



OArKial Policy.— -nie House having resolved itself Into a 
committee on the Australisn colonies. 

Lard J. RuntU ro5e to make his protnlsed staleroent of the 
view taken by the Government of our future policy with refe- 
rence to the colonies. Hegavean outline oFthe history of our 
coloDrsalion, and of the general principles upo.i which it had 
been conducted, from the year I6S7. He next adverted to the 
recent changes nbich had modified, and finally abrogated, the 
system oF monopoly whereby the commerce of out colonies had 
been confined to the mother country, and then described the 
vast extension of our colonial possessions, the rapid increase of 
their population, trade, shipping, and internal resources, the ratio 
of which, he remRrked. was most eiiraordin.iry, showing incon- 
testably the value o( those posHessions. Approaching the much 
agitated question, whether it was worth while to maintain our 
colonial possessions, he held it to be oitr bounden duty to do so; 
that we could not get rid of the resjionsibility of governing ihem 
for their own benefit; that weliad, moreover, obligsiions towarda 
tbe native races, who, in New Zealand and Natal especially, had 
shown a remarkable docility and splilnde to learn the arts of 
civilised life. The colonial harbours likewise Furnished security 
to our commerce in times of pence, and ibey were absolutely 
necesaary to ua in time of war ; and if abandoned by this country 
the coloniea would naturally appeal to other countries, frtio 






doubt accept their allegiance and become strong bj 
!sa. After examining various schemes and tlieories A 
colonial abandonment, he proceeded to develope the principtea 
upon which he thougbt the colonies should be governed, obserr- 
ing (hst, as a general rule, we could not do better than adopt 
the policy which had gu'ded out ancestors, who thau)[ht that 
wherever Englishmen went they should enjoy English freedom 
and English Institutions. After reviewing the suggestions of Che 
Association for Colonial Reform (the policy of which body, he 
remarked, was dubious), be explained what had already been 
done in reforming the institutions of our American colonies, and 
announced that the principle of representative government would 
be introduced into the Cape colony, where there would be two 
chambers, one an elective legislative council. With respect to 
the Australian colonies, the bill he was about to introduce pity- 
posed that there should be but one council, two-thirds of the 
members to he representatives of the people, the rest nominated 
by the Government, the colonies to have the power of alteriag 
their constitution and adding another chamber ; and the bill con- 
tained a provision for an assembly representing the dilferent pro- 
vinces, empowered to miike laws binding upon all and to regulate 
tbe prices of wastelands. With regard to both tbe American and 
Australian colonies, the desire of the Government, he observad* 
was to introduce the popular element, and to give full scope to 
the wishes of the people. After briefly notu-ing tbe chaogca 
made, or to be made, in other colonies, the question of irsna- 
portation, and that of emigration, he concluded that it should ba 
a cardinal point in our culotiial policy not to recede from thai 
principle of free trade; and that, consistently with the maxima 
of our ancestors, we i>hould, as far as possible, aa a general 
rule, introduce and maintain political freedom in our colonies. If 
some of these possessions should so grow in population and 
wealth aa to think they were strong enough to be entitled to in- 
dependence, by qualifying them fur selF-govemment, whatever 
might happen to this great empire, it would be a consolation to 
know that we had contributed to the happiness of the world. He 
moved for leave to bring in a hill for the better government of the 
Australian colonies. 

Mr, Rodnai admitted that the noble Lord's propositions wen- 
most liberal, and they had in a great measure satisfied bis mind.- 
With regard to South Africa, he bad nothing more to ask; bat 
why did he arrive at an oppoaite conclusion as to wbat waa Bt, 
for New Soath Wales? His belter spirit had acted in South 
Africa, but in Australia his evil genius bad prevailed, when be 
eopied his five new constitutioas in Australia from one baity 



Mr. Uawa observed that this " bulty " constitution was one 
which had given satisAiction to the colonists, and both New 
South Wales and Van Diemen's Land objected to any other; in 
framing new constitutions for Australia, therefore, it was deau»- 
ble to adopt as a model that fiwa which had worked well aod 
vraa acceptable to the colonists. But power was left to tha 
colonists, if they pleased, to establish a double chamber. With 
reference to the South African iHjnstitutioti, it was intended as K 
declaration of the Government that they would not object to 
elective councils in other colonies. 

Mr. Oladttvnt urged the Government not to commit a Gdsft 
step in relation to tbe Australian culuniea. Mr. Hawea bad said 
the single chamber bad been adopted bacause the peopleofNew 
South Wales objected to an upper bouse, and a remedy bad been 
provided for the error, if it be one, in the power given to Oim 
colony to remodel its constitution ; but the remedy was an im- 
perfect one From tlie manner in whieh tlic single chamber would 
be constituted, and the question whether tliey would havea doa- 
ble chamber had never been really put to the coionisti, who,, 
when they heard that llie Cape was to have ati elective upper. 
ehattiber, would desire one too. He should beieafter press upoa 
the house the expediency of having a double chamber in tha 
scheme of tbe Australia! 



Dr. Little has written an essay to prove that the coral reeli in 
the Eastern aitd Polynesian seas are the causes of fever, his maiit 
theory being that, owing to the vast amount of animal putrefce-' 
tion, "wherever coral reefs sre exposed, fsver, especially re- 
mittent fever, will he endemic on that spot;" and he hai endea- 
voured to demonstrate that by eismples. 

Thk Malats individually are of an independent cliaracler,

treatment, which if by a chief they would cheerfully or conteniedly- 
bear. would rouse tliem to rebellion or to Bight, were it to be in^ 
fiicled on tbem by a foreign power. — ColoiutLinii.

work on painule exceedingly well. Our correapondent had not

Jtteatt Dahabattea and MiSlarf Exenthnt in Ci^iott. By 
J. FoaaxB, lace Lkut.-Colonel TBth Highlander*: author of 
" Eleven Yeaia in Ceylon." Blackwood. 
Tni arowed object of this pamphlet ta " to attract attention to 
the wtooga of the iababitanta of ibe 'if«iuiitin Prorincea in Cey- 
lon." The author, wbo wa* commandant, diatriut judge, and 
Government agent, in tbe district of MataU, from 1888 to 1S37, 
must bare bad atmndinl oppartunities of acquiring local in- 
formation, and having, since IBil, oeased to have toy peraonal 
inteicat in Ceylon, ba must be presumed to write without bias. 
The picture he has drawn of the British policy io the [aland, from 
our past connection with it, and of our treatment of the native^ 
princes and people, is anything but a asltering one. Theae 
early errors, abusea, and even crimes, however, "become insig- 
niacant when compared wilh the transactions of IM.7-4B." 

Colonel Forbes ifflrma, and adduces evidence from tbe Blue 
Book to substantiate his avermenLs, —

SUMMARY AND REVIEW. 

iMnKAo <i the fall of •tatet, tb« «DneKationof terriUMT, 
tbe mir^ at boopa, and naTrativGR of tangninaiy conflicts, 
tbejoarnali bronght by the DiMent mail are filled with 
gorgeous deicoplions of. the.incideats of the mit of the 
GoTOYior-Geiientl of India to Bonba}-, and triih the glowing 
eoroplimenta paid to the Marquesi by all elauea.at that pre- 
■dsncy, where hia courteous and unaffected manners, not 
leM than hia intellectual qualitiea, it ia said, won for him 
" i^riden opinions," ia the Shakspearian aenae of that some- 
wtat hackneyed pbiue. 

_ ^rd IMhousie, with hia Marchioneaa, whom pur last 
ft—inriTy left at Moolipn, embarked in his iteam-fleet on 
tt« bidvi, and arrived at Sakkar and Roree on the 13th 



Januarj, where he held a levn and a durbar, at which he 
gare audience to Ali Moorad, the Meer of Khypore, who 
came there on purpose to pay his reapects to hia Lordahip, ' 
A prirate letter states that, at the interview, which lasted 
about half an hour, " the subject of tbe Meer'a misde- . 
■Manors was not broached, the Goremor-General deemiag 
the matter too complicalad for present amngemsiit, consi- 
dering the short time at hia disposal." Tbe Marquess re- 
turned the Meer's visit at his camp at Roree, wtiera he was 
recNved with all bononrt. 

Prom Roree hia Lordship proceeded, w the 15th, to 
Knrrschee, which be reached on the SSnd, risitiog Hfdra- 
bad in the waj, where he held a grand durbar. On the . 
36th he arrived at Bombaf . . '. 

Ills papers of that presidencf speak of his visit in terms ' 
which indicste that the intoxication of ytj, caused hj the 
nnaiual event, bad not then (three days after the Marquess's ' 
departure) entirdy passed away. 

The Sontbaf nhgrapk, thovgb now coadacted by an 
e^torjuat from the sceikes of London splendour, speaks 
of a " confosed dreamy impression," in which the Garemor- 
General of India, the Governor of Bombay, their brilliant 
staff and attendants, fignad in company with the 
Guicowar, his family, duMran ia tinsel dresses and peeked 
oapa, and tbetr motley crew of fglloweri, " constituting a 
nrid and highly variegaled picture." The Bombay Tlmi,_ 
more gravely, telle <rf the pnblic acts and general demeanour 
of tbe Marqitesi, who aaems to have conciliated every one 
with whom he came in contact. " Not contining himself," 
obssrves that paper, " to the common-place topics of the 
sigbtB be had seen, or the occurrences ae had met with at 
Bombay or on his journey thither, the Govern or- General ' 
entered most fatly on all the great subjects of interest con- 
nected with the policy of the Government, the (fosition, and 
the prospects, of India. He courted opportunities of learn- 
ing the ojHIiioaa of others, and of explaining his own ; and 
to thoae iriio had chanced to have had occasion to address 
him since his arrival in India on anj Hobiect whatever, he 
at once spoke of the matter, showing that there was no 
letter asnt to him passed over by him anreed, no matter of 
Inisiness left to the disposal of noderlings, dnA nothing 
which he had ever examined that had eacaped bis recollec- 
tion." 

The war-steamer FVrozs, on board which were the 
Marquess and Marchioness, not reaching tbe hariiour 
of Bombay until the night of the 26th, they did not land 
until the ensuing day (Sunday), when ihey w^re received 
by Lord Falkland, Sir W, Cotton, Commodore Lushington, 
and the other most distinguished persona of all the services. 
Both of the aiastrious visitors appeared in improved health. 
The business and pleasure of the week commenced on 
Monday, the 28th, and were continued until the Isl Fehniary, 
when they took their departure for Ceylon and the Straits.

Btepa in front of the ball, and attended him to hia seat. 
This chief or Baroda, — now the most important prince in 
Western India, — though he had lived all his days witUn 
forty miles of the coait, had never, until then, seen the sea. 
Hia Highness had come to the presidency to converse with 
the GovemoT-General on the conatruction of forty miles of 
railway from the seaport of Tankaria to the capital, pro- 

rd to be constructed within the Baroda atate, tn which 
Higbneaa is himself chief contribntor. One of the 
Governor's own residences waa assigned to the prince, where 
Ixjrd Falkland visited him, and where he waa received in 
due stale by the Governor-General of India. The Gnico* 
war was attended by aome thousand followers ; he wM to 
leave Bombay about the 9tb or lOth Pebrmu^, <m a ptt- 
grimage to his native village in the Deccan, with a retinue 
of cameU, elephanta, and horse and foot, " such aa might 
have won the smiles of the hero oF Somnanth himself, — so 
numerous, bo noisy, so senseless, useless, and eipem^ve, ia 
the train." 

The latest intelligence from the Commander-in-Chief '■ 
camp left him at Manikyala, on the 18ih January. Aa he 
proceeded, everything within his prorince of administration 
was inspected by him with rigid care, and condemnation or 
censure was the general tenour of hia remarks. 

The whole of India waa tranquil, if we except a slight 
outbreak of soma eight Sikh Akalie at Lahore, on the 22nd 
of January, who mside a mad attack npon some companies 
of the lat Fusiliers, killing one European. They were soon 
disposed of; aix of the Sikhs were killed, the others 
escaped. 

The aecounts from Peahawnr, which are to the 15ih Janu- 
ary, state that all waa quiet thue. The Bombay troopa, 
except the 3rd native regiment, bad left : Lieutenant 
Walker, of the engineera, waa to ramain to finiab the 
survey of the Valley of Peahawnr. The salt-mines of 
Kohat had been reported by Mr. Came aa most valu- 
able. A constant influx of Caboolees was taking place, 
and new buildinffe were rising in all parts of the city. 
The Khyberees amused themselves occasionally in the dark 
nights by stealing horses and camels from camp, with the 
view of benefiting by the large sums offered for their re- 
covery. There were twenty-five heads of clans of the 
Khyber present in Peahawur, who bad assembled for the 
purpose of taking an oath to the Commissioner to prevent 
their followers from plundering our people, on condition 
that they were not to De shut out from bringing in wood, 
grass, charcoal. Sec. to the Peabawur market. The result j 
of the Euaursaie expedition promised fovourably, the people 
of PuUoi having sent to their chiefs, who had fied to Swat, | 
informing them that ibej intended coming in to make their I 



aalaama, and pring up keeping tba aomn iriio bad hitherto 
plundered the peaceful Eoaiifniea. 

The Ameer of Cabool waa reported to bare taken Khoo* 
loom from tbe Meer Wullee, and to intend flying to it when 
tba Britiab troopa more on Cabool, which he is sud fidlf 
to expect they inll do aooner or later. 

liiere bad been heavy run all over tbe Punjab, as well a* 
throughout the North-west Provinces, betwixt the 5th and 
latb Jannarr: the storm crisis of tbe Qtb had been exp»- 
lienced from Oochin, Catch, and Knrracbee, all along tho 
line of the Indua, and across through Central India aa fur 
sonlb as Bareilly. 

71m conduct of tbe Khan of Babawnlpore, who so 
promptly aont i iJ'i'ni^r to Mooltan in May, and haa.on ^n 
occasions acted ao honourably towards na, especially in the 
time of difficulty, has been liberally rowarded for the is^ 
vices of bis troops with GO,O00I. in cash, being 10,0001. for 
each month bis army kept the field, and 10,000^ as a 
stipend for life. 

A strange intndent had occurred at Kurracbee. Mr. 
H. B. Marriott, third son of Mr. S. Marriott, late a member 
of Council at Bombay, died there ; and aa be bad Emnerir 
belonged to the 16th N.I., some of the sepoye of the 37tn 
N.I., at Enrrachee, with whom he had been a graat 
favonrite, voluntarily oAred to carry bis body to the piaee 
of interment, which they did. On arrivw at the cbuictH 
yard gate, the clergyman, tbe Rev. Mr. Watson, ntmtd to 
allow the corpse to be borne to the grave by Ihem, they 
being heathens I After some hesitation, the sepoys, who 
bad honoured to the ntmost of their ability tbe retnaina o£ 
the deceased, were induced to lower the corpse from thear 
shoulders, and remain ailent spectators of Ae ctnmoaf 
outaide the gate. It would, however, appear that tbej 
made a representation on the subject to the officer com- 
manding at Kurrachee, by whom, we are told, tbe case baa 
bscn banded on to Government. 

The treatment of Drs. Campbell and Hooker b^ tlie 
Bajah of Sikkim seems to have been aa barbarous as it waa 



unprovoked. Tbe Gove 



ir-G«neral had written a 



vrry 



threateidng letter to hie highness, who was said to be terri- 
bly alarmed ; bis only safety consists in the inacc«anbilit7 
and wortblessness of bis possessions. 

The Calcutta local intelligence ie acanty. Mr. Henry 
Palmer bad been dismissed from the appointment of super- 
intendent of alamps and deputy secretary to the Board of 
Customs, &c. The conduct of Mr. Hamilton, Resident at 
lodore, was unden(oing a further investigation, by CoL 
Low, on a charge broaght by Capt. Harris, tbe second 
assistant, it was currently reportaa that the local govern- 
ment is determined to persist in passing tbe " Black Acts." 

The long-pending alteration in the Cuetoms duties was 
finally dedded, and to take place on the lat of May, It 
conusta in tbe total abolition of export duties, and tbe im- 
position of eight per cent, upon all imported manufacturea 
and metals, instead of tbe present rates. He discrimi- 
nating duties on foreign good* will, it ia supposed, ceaM^ 
accoiding to the free-trade principle now ac(>Bpted by Go- 
vernment. 

The Calcutta papers slate that a mission from the Rajah 
of Nepal to the Supreme Government of India waa on ita 
way to the Presidency. 

Moulmein CAronieb of November 34 reporta the 
ry of a conspiracy to depose the King of BnrnUdi, 

which the priests were concerned ; more uan fifty per- 
sons had been decapitated.

THE CIVIL SERVICE ANNUITY. 
Some montfaa bach we auted that the memben of tbe civil 
Berrice at Bombay bad determined to present a memorial to tbe 
Court of DirectorE, requesting that tbe pension of 500i a year 
wbicb is granted to civil servants at tbe end of twenty-five years' 
•"rice night be relieved (tora the condition that tbey should 
hare paid up the sum of Rs. 50,000, for the puichaae of the an- 
noity of 500i The Bombay civiliaos have been auiioua lo ob- 
tain the co-operation of their brethren in Bengal, and thus to 
fc'i°B the proposal before the Honourable Court urder tbe most 
fcrour able circumstances. Perhaps it may not be altogether su- 
l>^Dona to explain to some of our readers that tbe annuity of 
I.00OL a year, which tbe members of tbe civil service enjoy, is 
l^ted at the end of twenty-five years, and Chat one-ball 
of It is con&idered in the light of a pension granted by 
Oe atate, and the other moiety as an annuity purchased by 
theb own contributions. But they cannot obtain the pen- 
non till they have paid for tbe full annuity. This payment 
ia effteted by a dednction of four per cent, from their monthly 
labries. When this airangemcnt was originally made, tbe allow- 
neca at the service were large enough to secure Che completion 
of thia payment, by the monthly reCrencbmenl, at (he end of Che 



periwi iMd I but Ikair enoluMeala bav» alnos feeM m BaCeaUIy

inability to understand upon what ground their repugnance to 
this adnnt^MUi and Teaaooable modileation of the rulea was 
baaed. If tbe propoaitioii had been carried, and the Court of 
Direetora had granted (belt assent to it, no member of tbe civil 
service would have bees compelled to relire on a smaller an- 
nuity than \J300L a year. Tlwse who determined Co remain in 
the aarvica until the bill anounC was secured by tha com- 
plete payment of tha aum of Rs. A3,000, would have been 
•a ■lieb at liberty to do so after tha medifieaCion, aa they 
are at present. Why tbey should bare stood in the way of 
blowing any af dieic brethren to retire upon a lower aib 
nuity, we are utterly utuble Co comprehend. The only effect 
ofdms allowipg Men, who from any fanuly, or personal cooai- 
dentMMsa, mi^t be desirous of ratiriug upon an ipferior an- 
uuiry.to accomplish this obJMt, would be to quicken promotion, 
which it must be tbe wish of Che whole body of tbe service to se- 
cure. We very mucb t^ret Ibis dcCermination of Che meeting, 
inasmuch aa it cannot tail Co weaken the hands of Cbe Bombay 
branch of the service, and to disincline tbe Court of Directors 
to their memorial. We trust the question will noc be allowed 
to drop, but that such a demonstration of the general wishes of 
the service on thia subject will be exhibited, aa to overrule Cbe 
repugnance of Che small number of dissidents at the presidency, 
and we cannot but think that an impartial re-eiami nation of Che 
proposal wiU satia^ even them Ibat it is calculated Co promote the 
mtereaCs of tbe whole body of the service, without interfering in 
the smallest degree with Chose of any particular individutd. —

THE SIKKIM COUNTRY. 
Tbe Skkim coon try is a scrip of tenitory which weeonquered 
(Jntm Nepal in 1816, and beacowed on the Sikhim Rajah. It is 
bounded on Che north and north-eaat 1^ Thitiet, on the south. 
eaat by Bootan, on tbe weat by Nepal, and on tbe south by our 
own territories. From Thibet it is sepanted by the highest 
Himalaya, in vbidi stands Che glorious Kanchin-jinga, the 
higbeat point on the globe, 38,000 feet above Che level of the 
sea. The whole of Che country, with the exception of a strip tk 
plain ^Kiut 300 square miles on its soucbam boundary, is com- 
posed of successive ranges of mountaioa, clothed for the moat 
pan wHh foreiu from (op to bottom, jntertecled by rapid tw- 
reUa, and abounding in rocky taatneaaea and deUee. In such a 
country, Cbs inhsbiCants must be few in number, and widely scat- 
tered. TNy couiltt of Lepchaa, Bhootiaha, Limbos, Mechis, and 
Moormis. The two latter inhabit the Temee ) the Limbos the 
norCb-weat, tbe Bhootiaha cbe norlh-eaat, and tbe Lepcbas the 
ceocra. Tbe entire area of the coiintiy i« aupposed noc to ex* 
oead 3,000 aquare miles, which ia a littlemore than balf the aur- 
hcB of Yorkshire ; and it wa allow six inhabitaDCa for a square 
mile, we shall have from 18,000 to SO.OOO, which is considered 
by all as very much above the nark. The trade of the country, 
as might be expected, ia smsU. Tbe chief aidcles of Crade are 
munjeet, raw cotton, coarse blankets, bees' wax, musk, chMuiea. 
and cberetta, in exchange tat which they import broad cloth, salt, 
earthenware, spicea, thread, oil. tobacco, and beade. Our trade 
both with Sihlnm and Bootan, especially in broad cloths, is in- 
creaaing, and ia likely still farther to inereaae, as greater facili- 
Ciea ofaeceaa to tbe country are created. The Rajah's resources 
are ver^ trifling. We give him a quit rent of Ra. 6,000 annually 
for Darjcling, and be derivea a considerable revenue from the 
atrip of lead in tlie Teraee, on the borders of Pumeah. which 
we bestowed on him. The army is a small undisciplined mbble.

to be cantoned at Sealkole, which station is to replace that of

Tna " ALratD' xm Tnnoi" have Ijeen taken Dp by Oo- 
temment to convey J60 invalids of tbe royal army to England, 
besides about thirty or forty men and women in health. Three 
or four officers will proceed in charge. Tbe Pr^tee o/ Wala 
takes the Company's invalids, siit^ in number, and about twenty- 
five men, women, and children, in good health. According to 
nisn, only one officer will accompany these. 

Thi ** advertising ' literatore of the day is noticed by tbe 
Star. An Australian hone was put up to auction, •nd de- 
•cribed as " perfectly quiet to ride and drive, and bas carried a 
lady; branded ' E. C." near shoulder." This onimat must have 
come ttom Norfolk laland, where.branded laiKu may be supposed 
teiideni. The same Ann sold a " large substsntial cage, with 
nine canuieB and six otber birds which sings weII." 

Houa DiiH TioH Calcutta to Miiairr. — A private com- 
pany is now being formed for the conveyance of goods and 
passengera and hoive carriage dakhs from Calcutta to Meerut 
When the government arrangements coma into effect tor tbe 
horse dakh from Benares to Lahore, a person wilt be enabled to 
reach the Utter station in about nine days from Calcutta. 

Ma. Ocaaai Iholis.— The fiujiuAnan thus notices the death 
of Mr. George Inglia, of Chattuck, in thedistrictorSylheL " The 
deceaGfd was probably the oldest European inhabitant of BengaL 
He was well known to oli wbo bad visited that part of tbe 
conntry.and there are few who have been in the neighbourhood 
without partaking of his hospitality^ Mr. Inglia waa highly re- 
spected, notonly by bisown countrymen, butby all the natirea 
of lhediEtrict,both those oftlie plaiiuuid the bills, the latter of 
whom have long looked up to him as a friend and protector. 
Mr. IngliB was in his seventy- seventh year, baring paued nearly 
sixty at Chattuck, and having been for that long period con- 
atantly eng^;ed in commercial pursuiU, in wblch he has always 
enjoyed a high reputaCion'.for integrity and honour." 

CAWNroix. — A correspondent from Cawnpore wrile^, under 
date 9lh January, as follows : — 

" This morning the S)tb regiment Native Infantry marched 
Into Cawnpore from Dinapore, ni nmle to Lahore. The men 
appeared healthy, and as there wtn but few dhoolees, there 
could not be many sick. 

The notorious Ram Sing from Lahore, eacorted by a com- 
pany of tbe 3(hh Native Inbntry, also marched, or rather rode, 
into Cawnpore this morning. The weather bas become beauti- 
fully mild, and the crops are in a most flourishing state from the 
late rains. We are now getting 52i seers of grain for tbe rupee." 
— Apra MetiengtT, Jan. 12. 

MasiM Maia. — The new cantonment at Meeau Meei baa 
been marked out) and we are indebted to a friend for a plan 
thereof. It faces Lahore. The rigbt commences about 500 
yards on the Ferozepore side of tbe Temple of Meean Meer; 
and tbe lert rests on tbe Feroiepore side, and will be distant 
from Anarkullee about 5 miles. Tbe barracks and all will be 
rMdy, it is supposed, by September neit. and the banacks, con- 
taining washhouses, reading-rooms, workshops, &c. Two ra- 
?iments N.I. to be in the front line, next to the European 
niantry, and two in the rear line next to the dragoons. The 
Staff lines come nett to the native uiCtntry ; and in the rear of 
these will be the Sudder Basaar. The irregular cavalry will be 
in the rear of the artillery. The cantonments will be 2\ miles 
long by one mile ieey.—MofiaaUilt, Jan. 8. 

FuTHAMEoTi. — We understand there is a rumour to the effect 
that a large cantonment is about being formed at Futbankote to 
command Goolab Sing's frontier. We give it as we have heard 
it, but the necessity of some such arrsngement gives it an ap. 
pearance of nrolwbilily, and we hope to Snd the rumour con- 
Armed.— DcUf Gtattte.

Tn Kon-i-Nooa.— Ifit be really trae, and we have heard Et 
upon excellent antbotity, that her Majeaty has declined reonr- 
ing the Kob-i-Noor as a price, the question very naturally pre- 
sents itself— what is to be dona vritb it? It Is too large to be 
set far a flnger-rin^. or an aigrettst or for entting glass; too 
valuable for any pbilaotfarapic potentate to set in a snuff-boa 
and present to some celebrated George-Thompson- like character; 
too unwieldy for general purpoaes ; ao useless, in fact, that no 
one knows what to do with it. A glorioua opportnni^ 
therefore now offers to the people of England to raise a special 
subscription, open to all who inhabit those dominions ** upon 
which the tun never sett," to purchase the gem for pretentation 
to faer Britannic Majeaty.as a token of their loyalty and affection 
at well as their estimation of the servicet of die arm^ in India. 
It would be priied more highly on account of the high honont 
done in its pretentation —on account of tbe blood that was spilt 
tn gaining it — on account ol its intrinsic worth — and on account 
of the possession of it being marked as an emblem of the death- 
blow to despotiam in a country, uneonquered until its brightest 
treasure fell into our hands. Tlie Koh-i-Noor is a prise up<H> 
which alt Englishmen ought to look with feelings of pride and 
gratification i it should never be permitted to leave England; in 
abort, the throne of England is the fittest place for such ■ gem. 
No difficulty was experienced in getting up an immense anm at 
a testimonial to Mr. Cobden, why than should there not be an 
equal facility for getting up one (or a Queen, whose mode «f 
ruling millions has kept peace in her realms, while almost every 
other nation throughout the world hat been shaken to ita baaa? 
— i)sai G(u., Job. 22. 

Thi Ei-Rasu.— The T^cJUGiuefl* baa leaned that Major 
Stewart, agent to the Governor of the North-western Provincet^ 
accompanied by a aufficient civil force, proceeded to the reai- 
dencB of the Ex- Ranee of Nepaul at Benares, for tbe purpose oC 
taking possession of all the treasure she bad therein, and which 
she was squandering in a most disreputable and thonghtleaa 
manner. The Major effected his object, though [not withonC 
Bome trouble, and a show of resisiance on tbe part of the IbiIt', 
who however soon saw it was useless, and allowed tbe proper^, 
amounting to about seven lakhs of rupees, to he taken away and 
safely lodged in the treasury at Benares. 

Das. CAHraiLL ahd Hooxia.— A letter from Titalya givas 
tbe followiiuF account of the escape of Dta. Campbell and 
Hooker i " Fifty of tbe Bhaugulpore Rangers were sent to es- 
cort Drs. Campbell and Hooker into Darjceling from the Run- 
geet; on their arrival at tbe Rungeet, tbe Rangers crossed the 
river and encamped dose by the dwelling of the Sikkim Utah's 
Dewan, where they had heard tbe two gentlemen were de- 
tained, and as this functionary was itili disinclined to release 
our superintendent, they spread a report among tbe Lepchas aod 
Booteabs about them, that they were followed by 500 European 
soldiers, who would, on (heir arrival, mattacre every Lepcfaa and 
Booteah they met, and cut the Dswao into piece*, if they toond 
that tbe Burra Sabeb of Dageeling waa not releaaed, and told 
them (the Lepchas) to advise their Dewan to release both Saheba 
immediately, if he at all valued bis life. The Dewan on baar* 
ing this report was so fri^tened that he inttanily set the Sabebs 
free, with whom the wily Sangera retraced their stepa to Dar-

BiaoA, 3(A Jan. 1650.— Yesterday our station was treated 
with one of the most severe hail storms I believe almoat erer 
experienced; it commencecl Bbout a quarter before II a.m., and 
pelted without eesiation for about a quarter of an hour ; the 
ground round about the bouse was covered witb ice, and looked 
like froMn snow, about U or 8 inches thick, the hailatones being 
as laqis a* pigeons' eggs, and some of them eveo larger. lie 
nativea stared wl lb aaloniihment, and tbe "oldest inhabitant "* 
declared ha had never gazed upon (be like before: the damage to 
the opium cropa must be conaiderabte. llie weather had been 
very mirky and cloudy for some time i it is now line and ctear 
again, although tbe early part oF the morning was very foggy. 

GwAuoa, I Iti Jajnuay. — We have been very gay here of late. 
The Govern or- General's agent, Mi. Buahby, and certain "ladiea 
hur," having paid us a visit. During their stay perpetual,'saluting 
and firing |of Iguns prevented other soundi being beanL Now 
that they have 1«^ sighs and groans are more than audible. 
Our church has been floifibed for some time, but Is not yet open 
for public worabip. It was found, after all bad been completed, 
that tbe Bishop of Calcutta's licence to open tbe church could 
not be procured wltbout a fee. Do you beliere it ? Tea, Rs. 64, 
-^il guineas ! is the sum demanded. This T am told goes to 
his lordship's registrar,— Well, our local bishop (Foy) remit* 
the aoin, and ii told in reply thnt at present the bishop, 
being absent fttim Calcutta, the licence cannot be granted. 
Here, then, is the Gwalior community, who have at great ex- 
pense and trouble (with the assistance of dte charitable) been 
able lo provide themselves with a place of woiehip — but are not 
allowed to put it to that, nor till they have paid a fee, the 
ehurch fund being at the tame time deeply in debt — and when 
the money has been made avaltable, then " the bishop is absent 
from Calcutta," &c. Sic. These, I believe, are the bets, and 
they speak for ibeniBelves. Had many of the subscribers known 
that a portion of the ftinda were to be paid to Mr. Abbott tor a 
licence, I suspect (be Gwalior church would never have been 
built' It was oor Intention to have opened the cburcb on tbe 
flrat Sunday of 1850. whilat Mr. Bushby and hia suite were be»; 
when It wtn be opened ia another thing.— A^a Mataatr,

considered anfident for tbe purpose, aa it ia by the moat eompe.

' fit two Ihinga oinat happen with an adTanee of 700 men into

the former, though there is nothing to preTcnt the latter ; either 
will be an abdication, and I aoppoie suit tbe purpose ot Gorem.

TiTALTAB. — Onr lettera from Titalyah are to the 2and Inataat. 
They state that " the 16th N.l. grenadiers arriTed at Titalyah on 

'the 8lh instant, and the 14Ui N.I. marched from thia for Dariee- 
ling on the same date. At Fbaaeedooah, a Tillage of the Sikhim

Titalyah at l«tt marched for Fonkabaree on tbe Iftth in-

The whole of the Uth regiment, the Europeana 
at DatjeeliDg and the aappers, are to mardi imme-
